Zdzisław Beksiński

Polish fantasy artist, 1929 – 2005. You’ll have probably seen his art kicking about somewhere. Notable uses include Leviathan’s Verräter and Nightbringer’s Rex Ex Ordine Throni. Major props to this guy, he’s created some of the most unsettling and provocative scenes I’ve ever seen. R.I.P.













Hates music and writing. Unfortunately, he's a journalist.

    My absolute favorite artist! Great post. So many bands use his artwork now, it's ridiculous. In fact, the new Blood of Kingu sports one of my favorites.

    New Blood Of Kingu you say? Will have to get my hands on that. The Nightbringer release I mentioned uses an edit of the same image.

    Excellent post, reminds me of HR Giger's post-apocalyptic landscapes.
