Zdzisław Beksiński, romantic, gothic, whatever
Beksinski was a painter who had an absurdly good eye for detail and realism for someone who underwent no formal training whatsoever. I've seen many of his paintings pop up here and there and I'm always blown away by them. They manage to chill me despite being purposefully heavily desensitized by the internet. Many of his images, without any given context can insight some strange human fear, these creatures are not of any lore and I have no idea what is happening here, but I know I am afraid of this unknown world. Oh and he's polish by the way.
