A couple months back we told you about artist Fran Krause, who brings the deepest darkest fears of both himself and his fans to life through comic strip-style drawings. Whether we want to admit it or not, we all have our own fears, insecurities and inner demons, and we've just come across another artist who brilliantly taps into these ideas - albeit in a very different way than Krause does.
As we spotted over on Beautiful Decay, Alicia Martin Lopez is a Spanish artist currently living in New York, and she's fascinated by the idea of psychological turmoil, with her art serving to conceptualize those inner demons that we all struggle with on a daily basis. Lopez's paintings oftentimes depict nightmarish, otherworldly beings that are both haunting and horrifying, with a touch of beauty thrown into the mix.
The paintings perfectly capture the way Lopez sees these so-called inner demons; "They are like a seed planted in us wishing desperately to germinate," she says. "Watered correctly, it can thrive in beautiful ways."
