Samuel Araya, Capricorn and Mars

Lots of different influences seen in the works of Araya. Fuseli, Bocklin, Schiele, Klimt, Bosch, Redon, Beksinski. I’m not meaning to name drop at all here. These are artists I really recognize in his work, which really promotes fantasy art (done for heavy metal and science fiction covers among other things), to a higher level.  Here you might see influences of Klimt, Schiele, and Art Nouveau in general.

About kinneret

Hello, and welcome. I'm writing this blog under an alias. Why an alias? I started to write what may be described as an "American Gothic" novel (sort of Henry James/ Franz Kafka with violence) with some autobiographical details. ..when I started this blog I just decided to use the alias. This blog is about art and art history, but my interests also include literature, film analysis, psychology, forensic psychology, faerie tale analysis, cognitive therapy, cognitive linguistics, classical theater, World War II, and Russian and British history. My favorite writers include Kafka, the Brontes, and Philip K Dick. Thank you for reading this blog and I will happily reply to any comments.
