It may be that the skull is grinning or the fact that there's two crows perched by it, but there just something beautifully eerie about Mark Alsweiler's paintings.

The Sydney-based artist is influenced by personal inspirations, such as American, Western, Indian and Mexican cultures. Each painting has a symbolic theme to it and throws in different textures and colors to truly make his pieces shine. Be sure to check out the gallery for a closer look at Mark Alsweiler's work.
