This Is What The Chilling World Of Necrorealism Looks Like

Hailing from the bleak industrial city of Liverpool in England, painter and visual artist David Van Gough simply describes himself as a 'necrorealist'.

The term 'Necrorealism' was first established during the late 1980's in Russia, where it was used to denote any form of art laced with black humor or a sense of the absurd. Traits that are both common within Van Gough's eye-catching and macabre creations.

His paintings are influenced by 70's occultism, horror comics, dark electronica and a healthy dose of self-confessed Catholic guilt.

"My work sits on the banks of a certain transformative ideology, but it’s shaded by the cold harsh realities of the carcass left behind." explains Van Gough.

"It’s not pretty, and it certainly isn’t for everyone’s tastes, but it isn’t nihilistic because it seeks to excavate some spiritual illumination from darkness." he confesses.

You can explore more of Van Gough's hallucinatory and imaginative world through his official site, whilst limited edition prints and originals are available for sale here.
