Filled with fantasies and nightmares, Lucian Stanculescu illustrations have a demonic evil to them that is both disturbing and exciting.
A self-described antagonist, Lucian Stanculescu creates unusual imagery with imaginary characters who are slightly disfigured and quirky and some who are just downright frightening. Monsters, fair maidens, aliens and other oddities take central stage without any busy backgrounds to distract the viewer. Some of the illustrations utilize dark, sombre colors, which create an eerie mood that fits with the macabre subjects portrayed. Others utilize pale pastels in order to give a more ethereal portrayal of the bizarre creatures.
Using these two different styles, the Lucian Stanculescu Illustrations explore different aspects of dreams; some are strange yet pleasant and some can be nightmarish.
