Russian artist Yaroslav Gerzhedovich's paintings are classically dark often monochrome and surreal creations. Featuring barren fields, ancient structures, and fantastical compositions Gerzhedovich's paintings transfix the viewer. The haunting imagery is created on paper with acrylic, pencil, ink, and occasional digital manipulation. Inspired by the European masters from the 14th through 17th centuries, Gerzhedovich's work reads like a detailed and dark surreal dreamworld.
