The Art of Ivan Solyaev

I don't know about you but, when I really sit down and think about it,nightmares are fantastically beautiful ruminations of our innermostconscious, pure imaginations so to say. This is no better expressedthan through the work of Russian artist, Ivan Solyaev. His haunting landscapes aresurrounded by icons of the apocalypse, sly references to pop cultureand seem to deal head on with the idea of ghosts and death. Themorbid quality of air is juxtaposed by the stark grey and white makingthe pieces seem as though they're from long ago or some other placeand time, certainly from a creative mind unlike any other. - Zach Tutor
