The creepy art of Zdzisław Beksiński

Painting by Zdzisław Beksiński
Polish-born painter Zdzisław Beksiński (1929-2005) once said, "I wish to paint in such a manner as if I were photographing dreams." Despite the fact that he was raised in the rubble of World War II, and suffered personal tragedies, such as the suicide of his son, he was said to be a pleasant and humorous man.

He didn't frequent museums, was too shy to attend his own gallery openings, and didn't take inspiration from movies. He said his inspiration came from classical music, which he always had playing when he worked. 

He didn't put titles on his paintings, because he didn't want them to be misinterpreted. Although most people find his work disturbing, he believed his work was optimistic or even humorous. Unfortunately he was savagely murdered in his old age.
