Vania Zouravliov was a child prodigy inspired from an early age by influences as diverse as The Bible, Dante, early Disney animation, North American Indians and Poe.
Told in Russia that his work was from the Devil, he has described his pieces as having a Hoffmannesque feel, and has always been interested in creating graphic art in its purest form. Others call his work a blend of Rock Chic and Punk.
Here is an extensive Gallery, (Some pictures NSFW).

Amazing, the scrambled-egg scrambled-image elaboration folks will embroider around their pix of cute girls. Oh say, I already had a copy of Autumn Rot (gallery link), but without attribution. Vania Zouravliov, now I know. Thanks very much for that.

NSFW? There's at least one picture in there of what looks like a rape in progress.

Very cool and creepy. I'd love to see some video games or movies use him as inspirations, get some more diversity into their aesthetics.
