The Dark-Surrealist Paintings of Steven Russell Black

by Andy SmithPosted on

Steven Russell Black’s horror-filled paintings and drawings have a cinematic quality. Black refers to himself as a “painter with an obsessive compulsion to champion the odd, fringe, or otherwise unappreciated.” In his drawings, these scenes and characters carry an even more ghostly quality.

In terms of any themes that can be extracted from his work: “If there’s anything that keeps coming up over and over, it’s an idea of what something is supposed to be, and then I want to pull the rug out and tell you there’s something else underneath—and keep you guessing,” he told the Waiting To Dry Podcast.
