Zdzisław Beksiński (濟斯瓦夫·貝克辛斯基)

These mysterious, nightmarish and beautiful works of art were created by Zdzisław Beksiński (b. 1929), a renowned Polish painter, photographer and sculptor. With no formal training in art, Beksiński mainly painted with oils on handmade hardboard panels while listening to classical music. Beksiński refused to name and interpret his works, and even burned a selection of them in his backyard claiming them to be “too personal”. Tragically, Beksiński was murdered in 2005 by the teenage son of his long time caretaker for his refusal of a small loan of approximately $100.

The apocalyptic visions of his work remind me of the movie 9.
