Horrific doesn’t always mean bad.
I know we use horrific when something is really bad but the following art pieces are actually quite great in an unsettling way. However, I wouldn’t want to put one on my wall because I’d have to see it every day and I might get nightmares because of it. If you think I am over-exaggerating, then you clearly have never seen the work of the artist known as Magda Patyk.
They like to invoke imagery that is not only terrifying but also instills a deep sense of fear in you. Most comments on their art pieces are about how their illustrations describe mental illnesses for many people. And I can say with certainty that this is quite true as I went through quite a few of their pieces and each one was unique and horrific in its own way. The most amazing way is that they don’t use loads of things to draw, mostly relying on simple sketches but detailed in their own way.
I am definitely ruining their art’s descriptions. So let’s forget my blabbering and get on with what you all came here to see. Scroll below to take a look.
#1 Doesn’t this one look like its eyes are always following you wherever you go?
#2 I sense a theme in their illustrations and it is creeping me out.
#3 This one is even more terrifying with a lot of blood thrown in to really nail the horror home.
#4 That smile is unnerving me in more ways than you can imagine.
#5 All the things that make us unique fade away with time until there is nothing left but a husk.
Magda’s Instagram is filled to the brim with similar illustrations but each one is different in some way. However, everyone will be able to notice the theme running through it. They mainly only use black and white to create their pieces and sometimes throw red in to really bring the focus on all the blood. They currently have 160k followers there and if you love their work, you should definitely check their Instagram out as they post them regularly.
#6 Here we go again with media setting new unrealistic beauty standards for people.
#7 When you draw something meticulously but you accidentally spill your coffee on it.
#8 This one looks so easy to draw but I got as far as making a crooked eye before I gave up.
#9 They sure do love drawing eyes that stare deep into your soul, don’t they?
#10 If two eyes aren’t enough for you, here we have three. Doesn’t that make it so much better?
