On the Boundaries of Darkness

On the Boundaries of Darkness by Anton Semenov. Anton Semenov is a digital illustrator from Bratsk, Russia who creates extraordinary animated portraits and mind-bending dark themed characters and worlds. Anton Semenov is as mysterious as his work. Hiding under the nickname Gloom82 on DeviantArt, this young digital artist living in Bratsk, Russia, has indeed created a very dark universe.  Semenov’s post apocalyptic cityscapes and intricate monsters bear the inheritance of H.R. Giger’s alien paintings and sculptures, Philip K. Dick’s disturbed science fiction and H.P. Lovecraft’s genetic horrors. Navigating between darkness and neutral tones, Semenov’s digital images lead the viewer to a world of his personal nightmares, inviting us to move along spooky corridors, inhabited by monstrous creatures and pallid over-sized children. His human characters, with their links to childhood and tales, reminds us of the work of illustrator Stefan Zsaitsits and a colorless Tim Burton. We can also spot some similarities with painter Beksinski.  Not surprisingly then, Anton is working on music CD covers, as his epic surrealism seems a great fit for hard rock and dark electro. But his attention to detail and hidden sense of humor is sure to drive him even further. Are you afraid of the dark ?
