Martin Eder paints a wide range of subject matter. Last year he did a series involving cats, this year he's concentrating on the strength of women -- women warriors, specifically. With his signature atmospheric style, Martin Eder's heroines are blurred between the lines of reality and fantasy. Beautiful Decay writes, "Blending Botticelli-esque classicism with contemporary hyperrealism, Eder’s paintings defy categorization, appealing in their ambivalence to our fantasies through passionate stories radiating courage and melancholia."

With this in mind, it comes as no surprise that Martin Eder's work is so captivating. These particular paintings make up an exhibit titled 'Those Bloody Colors,' which is currently showing at Eigen + Art in Berlin, Germany. Powerful and incredibly detailed, it would be an entirely different experience in person.
