Beksiński was an artist from Poland who created imagery that came to be known as fantastic realism. He is one of my new favorite artists. I am amazed. I love his dark ethereality. When talking about his art, he had said, "We all see death before our eyes. I am not an exception. Personally, I am more afraid of dying than death itself. This is not a fear of emptiness but of suffering, and this is what I am most afraid of." Sadly, it's ironic because I found out that he was murdered in 2005.
Rest in peace, my friend.
