These bizarre mixed media images, paintings and digital artworks created by Swedish artist Mia Mäkilä are heavily influenced by 14th century art, and the work of modern movie directors including Tim Burton, John Waters and Ingmar Bergman.

Her work, which she describes as lowbrow and horror art, ranges from pop culture critique and fairytale subversion to distortion and manipulation of human portraits.

Mäkilä says she paints her demons and her nightmares to get rid of them, and she paints her fears and sorrows to deal with them.
