Oil Paints are not an easy medium.
Creating a masterpiece in oil paint may look difficult, but YouTube videos make it look easy. Don’t be fooled by its surface complexity; mastering its texture, colours, and overall aesthetic requires years of practise. And that’s especially true of paintings with macabre subject matter. For the simple reason that it takes a great deal of effort put into the minute details before a painting can strike genuine terror into the viewer.
Because most horror films rely on cheap jump scares to pump up the audience, audiences have become numb to their effects. However, the real cause for alarm is far more nuanced. Fear is always greater when confronted with the unknown, rather than with a monster with spikes. However, this artist has given us more than just our favourite horror icons.
They appear identical at first glance, but upon closer inspection, something very unsettling emanates from them. And you can make up your own mind by reading on down below.
#1 Pennywise with a sinsiter grin.
#2 Leather face.
#3 Blind but seeing everything.
#4 The frosted lady.
#6 The night of the full moon.
#7 The red-eyed raven.
#8 The broken neck lady from The Haunting Of Hill House.
#9 Creature of the moths.
#10 Consumed by the darkness.
Zack Dunn’s paintings have a distinct style all their own, and he often experiments with both homages to classic monsters and brand new concepts. They consistently post to Instagram, where they have over 261,000 followers. You can buy prints of their horrifying artwork to display in your living room from their online store. You’ll get a stunning piece of art in return for your expression of gratitude for their efforts.
#11 The time has come for him to wake.
#12 The endless hallway.
#13 The rotten green magic.
#14 Eyes that spew poison.
#15 The reaper of the cold.
#16 Hell has frozen over.
Original paintings are also available for purchase in case you prefer to experience the artwork firsthand and are not a fan of prints. However, they will be considerably more costly than the prints. But if you can afford it, I think it’s great that you want to hang the original in your home at your own expense.
#17 Rotting away.
#18 The red scream.
#19 One winged demon.
#20 The white owl.
