David Glomba - Dark Rituals

Posted by Justin Meyers on


"Journey...Nothingness" 2016 illustration for Kaosophia drawing with use of inks, ink pigments, and blood.

David Glomba is a Slovakian artist and illustrator working in acrylic paint and collage. Glomba mixes his thickly-applied acrylic paint with blood, dirt, ink, and even ashes. His dark subject matter has been employed by artists such as Krolok, Ascension, and Cult of Fire. Visceral and mysterious in nature, these are intriguing creations by a unique artist.
