Exploring the human condition through art has never been easy but these fantasy portraits do it very well. Artists have incorporated dark and fantastical themes into their pieces in order to express complex ideas in a single frame. This list contains otherworldly portraits that incorporate themes of fantasy.
The use of animals in portraiture is not uncommon but fantasy painters have distorted their image into something odd and surreal. Pieces like chivalrous feline paintings and surrealistic animal portraits anthropomorphize common animals to express dark or playful themes.
Fantasy portraits that incorporate morbid visuals have also been emerging. Crumbling child captures and other dark portraits take an intimate look at grim emotions. Portraits like dark inky artworks use surreal themes to express feelings of anger, hurt and loss.
