THE FANTASTIC ART OF BEKSINSKI - 1998 [1st Ed]
The Fantastic Art of Beksinski
published by Galerie Morpheus International, Inc.
A splendid volume on Beksinski's otherworldly, haunting dark art. Opening the gates of worlds of fantasy and desolation, this exceptional artist, of whom H.R. Giger said: "[his] powerfully unique paintings are such as I have never before seen", gives us a glimpse of what the underworld and the lower regions of the Earth, unexplored yet by man, might look like. In addition to the magnificent full-color reproductions of the works, the volume puts together some inspiring quotes of the artist, revealing his philosophy and the depth of his thought for a better understanding of his difficult-to-grasp art, as well as an introduction by James Cowan. The DJ features quotes and praises by other artists. 72 pages. 9.75 x 12.25 inches.
FIRST EDITION. Lavishly illustrated with full-color reproductions of the artist's works. With an introduction and quotes of the artist. DJ features quotes and praises by other well-known figures of the art world.
