Eurosurrealist paintings of Viktor Safonkin
September 8, 2013 6:35 AM   Subscribe

Viktor Safonkin is an artist who classifies his style as Eurosurrealism, and could be considered more in line with Hieronymus Bosch than Salvador Dalí. Fantastic Visions has more on the artist and some of his art, and you can see a simple gallery of images without titles or details on the Art Odyssey blog. A more complete gallery of work is on Safonik's Facebook page. You can also watch a short (9 min.) film exhibited at the Viktor Safonkin`s expozition in St. Petersburg's Russian Museum.

If you'd like to sit and watch his images go by, here are three YouTube videos of just that: 1 (set to music by Steve Roach), 2 (set to Tool), 3 (unnamed musician).

Wow, his art is fascinating. I can see why you make the Bosch connection. Great find.

Bosch meets Dali with a nod to the Orthodox Surrealist Movement and Francis Bacon.

(Just another semi-informed judgment about an interesting painterly stylist.)
