Controversial Paintings Of People Skinned Alive That Will Shock You

The complex and detailed portraits of oil painter Valerio Carrubba will delight and shock you in equal amounts. Inspired by volumes of antique anatomy books and surgery atlases, his unusual artworks pay tribute to the Renaissance and Baroque eras in their tone and composition.

Each piece seemingly harks back to an era where cruelty and torture were daily occurrences. Tales of individuals being skinned alive, hung drawn and quartered and sliced open permeate many accounts of the Middle Ages.

Drawing from those horrific tales, Carrubba uses his incredible technique to combine centuries of mythology, scientific discovery and art history into a series both compelling and gruesome.

Impressively each artwork is anatomically correct and whilst his subjects appear at ease with their internal organs being pulled apart, in reality it would be some of the most horrific torture you could endure.
