Zdzislaw Beksinski

p p Zdzislaw Beksinski <-- was a renowned Polish painter, photographer, and sculptor who is best known as a fantasy artist. Beksinski executed his paintings and drawings either in what he called a 'Baroque' or a 'Gothic' manner. The first style is dominated by representation, with the best-known examples coming from his 'fantastic realism' period when he painted disturbing images of a surrealistic, post-apocalyptic environment. The second style is more abstract, being dominated by form, and is typified by Beksinski's later paintings. Beksinski was murdered in 2005. (via Wikipedia) p p

Dream in Conflict

p p 'Dream in conflict' by artist Liu Jianhua at Galleria Continua in Italy. 'Liu Jianhua’s work is deeply rooted in Chinese culture and in the dynamics of a rapidly changing nation, where there is a need to find an artistic idiom capable of expressing and formalizing the complex phase of economic and social transformation that China is currently undergoing. At the same time, a central concern remains the desire to develop further by engaging with a broader international context. Liu Jianhua was born in Ji’an, in the Chinese province of Jianxi, in 1962. He lives and works in Shanghai.' p
