The Wax Drawing Series by Katharina Ziemke is Surprisingly Haunting

This haunting new series of scratched wax drawings by artist Katharina Ziemke makes for a very dark and psychedelic viewing.

The German artist uses wax crayon and acrylic paint on paper to bring to life her very realistic art with the thinnest of brush strokes and a mix of bright and subtle colors.

Many of her pieces showcase figures; some are intense and just focus on one and others almost seem to be a behind-the-scenes portrayal featuring numerous figures at the same time.

Featuring retro gangster-like lifestyle scenes, abstract landscape and figure shots, the artist pulls us with the photorealistic monochrome base technique she implements, and of course her use of intimate lines of color. Known for her brilliant artistic endeavors in the world of texture using wax, ink, wood and pastels, Ziemke's new wax drawings definitely do not disappoint.
