These Creepy Paintings Provide A Peak Into A Dark, Fairytale World

Bill Mayer creepy paintings hint at tall-tales of dark fairies and weird, hybrid creatures. Blackbirds sprout human heads. Tinker Bell fairies eat human flesh at night. Giant tortoises walk taller than trees.

Mayer's paints these pieces with gouache, a challenging and opaque paint medium.

“I have been playing with the gouache paintings for some time now,” the artist says of his work. “They have been a joy to explore. Sometimes they fail miserably but I always learn something from each of these little failures. It seems like the subject matter may sometimes seem a bit dark and creepy. I am thinking it’s a natural perception because of the surreal nature of the subject matter.”
