Futuristic Dystopian Art

Alexandra Damacsek Uses Morbid Photo Manipulation to Create a Dark World

— August 25, 2011 — Unique
The work of Alexandra Damacsek is so much deeper than what meets the eye. Each of this talented artist's photo manipulations are carefully crafted so to reveal a dark and sinister world, which surpasses far beyond her Budapest, Hungary location.

Alexandra Damacsek isn't afraid to dive into untouched subject-matter and taboo topics including unborn embryos and blood splatters. I find myself naturally drawn to each of these morbid portraits like an underage child yearning to stay up and watch scary horror movies. Alexandra Damacsek's amazing photo manipulations are a visual equivalent to the gory 'Saw' movie franchise.
Trend Themes
1. Morbid Art - An opportunity for art galleries to host exhibits showcasing unconventional art that pushes the boundaries of artistic expression bridging the gap between the classical and contemporary art forms.
2. Dark Aesthetic - A chance for fashion designers and apparel companies to experiment with dark colors and themes to create a unique brand identity showcasing their edginess and differentiating them from other brands.
3. Gothic Photography - An opportunity for photographers to specialize in capturing various aspects of gothic photography, such as portraying dark emotions, exploring macabre themes, and using unconventional post-processing techniques.
Industry Implications
1. Artistic Representation - An opportunity for unique artwork to be created beyond the traditional art forms to provide an alternative representation of the world from artists who specialize in capturing unconventional themes and emotions.
2. Fashion - An opportunity for designers to explore the existence of taboo themes in the fashion world and create bold fashion statements that disrupt traditional fashion to provide an alternative viewpoint, benefiting the edgier customers and young adults.
3. Photography - An opportunity for photographers to use imaginative concepts to capture unique images that appeal to a wider audience, producing more creative images that match the mood and message the photographer wants to convey to the public.
