Macabre, bizarre, and mostly stippled It is very delicate at times, and his use of line is deliberate and very calculated The style reminds me of John Dyer Baizley, who is in and did the cover art for Baroness but much darker This is the sort of art that you d imagine illustrating a collection of Akutagawa s weirdest stories It is strange and wonderful to look at, but it may disgust some and make them feel uncomfortable If it had a smell it would be of rotting flesh and ylang ylang, heavy Macabre, bizarre, and mostly stippled It is very delicate at times, and his use of line is deliberate and very calculated The style reminds me of John Dyer Baizley, who is in and did the cover art for Baroness but much darker This is the sort of art that you d imagine illustrating a collection of Akutagawa s weirdest stories It is strange and wonderful to look at, but it may disgust some and make them feel uncomfortable If it had a smell it would be of rotting flesh and ylang ylang, heavy and cloying and hard to breathe (((READ EBOOK))) ☆ Vania ↚ Russian born Vania Zouravliov s surreally haunting illustrations capture a mixture of innocence, brutality, beauty and decay Inspired by a diverse range of influences, Vania draws inspiration from sources as seemingly opposite as Russian romantic folklore, Japanese illustration and pop culture His resulting drawings are elaborately composed and demonstrate the technical brilliance of an old master In artworks that often depict beautiful women involved in macabre or erotic scenes, Vania s intense emotional style evokes a nostalgia rooted in the artist s Russian background and attributed to the imagery of Russian silent and art house movies His dark motifs are intricately layered and full of powerful symbolism, often with sadomasochistic references, that are both provocative and sensitive and which represent the vulnerable relationship between innocence and affliction As the first monograph on the artist s work, this publication presents the expansive scope of an exceptional talent As a prodigy in his homeland, Vania has exhibited internationally since the age of thirteen, and has continued to produce a vast range of work for both commercial clients and as an independent artist A beautiful book for anyone who loves ink and tonal drawings Zouravliov s art is reminscent of Aubrey Beardsley at his most twisted and naughty This is not a book for children the illustrations are heady with the clash between innocence and carnal lust, death and hedonism Yet the drawings are so elegantly rendered, it makes the material easy to enjoy This is my favorite art book for its profound, dark beauty and the virtuosity of the artists work. Dearest Russia, I would like to to thank you for a visual and literary gene superiority Don t stop breeding Brilliant, dark and twisted Definitely not for everyone Bizarre dark art Don t look at it if you don t want to feel weird.
