Poludnica- inspiration of Beksinski painting by StrigoiVii Poludnica- inspiration of Beksinski painting by StrigoiVii
Stained glass, about 80x60

Południca was a demon from Slavs mythology. She was dead bride, who was torturing people and killing them. When południca found on field in midday man who was sleeping in shadow of tree, she ordered him dance as long as he died from tiredness.

Zdzisław Beksiński is Polish contemporary painter. His painting was full of death, dark mood, sadness, decomposition of bodies, nature, buildings, etc.

A great use of the materials and an interesting change from the usually colorful stained glass. Poludnica- inspiration of Beksinski painting by ~StrigoiVii ( Suggested by mintyy and Featured by Talty )

Yeah, maybe next time I should read. Ha ha. I was excited. The tonality of a lot of your work reminds me of Beksinski also.

wow, I really love this one! How do you make a painting like this while using this medium? It's very very impressive!

The artwork of Beksinski is wonderful, the atmospheres he portrayed are really unique and haunting. Nice to see that you are a fan as well! :)

that's quite complicated. This stained glass was painted, so first I had to prepare a drawing (actually lots of drawings) and cut out pieces of glass, grind them and start with enamels, made for stained glass painting. Each of them had to be burnt separately, in 540-600 degrees, to fuse permanently with glass. First I used paint similar to acrylis or something like that to do lineart, after - next layers were just flat stains of patinas, which I was removing with brush in places where should be light, midtones. I burnt this stained glass six times I think. After, the last step is wraping each element with copper foil and soldering :) This is my diploma, so I had one year to finish everything.

Oh, you like Beksinski too? I didn't know that this Polish painter is famous in other countries :) In UK, where I currently live, no one knows him

wow.. that sounds like a lot of hard work. I'm really impressed! Where did you learn all this? 
It shows that you took your time to make it perfect :) I hope you got a great mark on it :)

All I learnt in highschool were basic fundamentals, a bit of anatomy study, and some graphic design.
Now I'm moving more towards digital art and game design, since I do not have the possibility to work traditionally, sadly. 
You have inspired me to make a painting similar to your genre. Will work on it as soon as I have done my school assignments. 

Yeah, I really admire his work :) I consider it as being 'mature' art. It's dark, melancholic, about death, those are all very interesting subjects in my opinion. 
Well I have lived in Luxembourg my whole life, and I don't think that many people know him here. I'm now studying in Belgium and it's the same here. The people in my university are mostly gamers, so they don't have a very broad knowledge about art in general.
I stumbled upon his art, because I'm very interested in the genre, and it's sad that not so many people know about him. 
Where are you located in the uk? :) 

Thanks for the taking your time to reply! High-five!

I finished school in Poland which offers lot's of artistic subjects together with all normal stuff, maths, biology etc... It's called ''artistic high school'' in my country, actually it's complex of art schools, younger people can learn there as well. You can choose there specialisation and at the end of education made a diploma artwork, gain ''fine artist'' title, I chose stained glass :)  

I saw your gallery and read a journal in which you said where you study now, I always appreciate people doing design and digitals, I can't do it :) making stuff for games sounds like a good fun, you have a chance to create whole new worlds, which will move, be alive and tell stories, have you tried to do it so far? Have you worked with studios creating games?

I'm always glad to hear that I inspired someone, I read your reply before I went to work and you made my day, you have no idea how important inspiring people is for me :) I can say that this is one of main aims of my art. 

I live in London, not for long, will be two years soon.

Oh I see, that's really cool!
In Luxembourg, we have 7 years of highschool, and for the last 3 you can choose a specialization, and I went for arts. I guess it's a bit similar to what they do in Poland, but less focused maybe, and not as long.

Thank you very much for taking a look at my gallery! At the moment it's quite messy, and I need to clean it up. I didn't have much time, and energy to do so, due to a few difficult circumstances.
At the moment I'm still quite new to it. Right now I'm working on a small 'City scene' for my assignment. So I basically need to build 3 buildings in 3D and make some trees, etc. Drawing wise, I need to design an underwater vehicle using linework only.
I'm really looking forward to learning more about it, because like you said, creating living world, tell stories, is really what makes this very interesting :)

It's good to hear that I made your day, I'm really happy that I was able to do so :)

Oh cool :) I have family that lives not that far from London.
How is it to live there? I've been there a few times, but never for a long time.

7 years of high school? That's a long time! In Poland is just three, in my case it was 4, because school was completely different than normal one. But maybe education system is different, how many years of school do you have before high school? We have 6 years of elementary school, after that 3 years of secondary school, high school- 3 or 4 years. Maybe you don't have the middle one? We used to have this kind of system years ago, in 80s and 90s I think... or maybe even before.

This project sounds cool, I hope you will show it on deviantart and I will be able to have closer look ;) 

Well... London is.. huge, colourful, everybody is in rush, many things happen every day, it's multicultural and kind of messy. I like when many things happen around me but I'm sometimes tired of noise and crowd. Anyway, quality of your life doesn't depend on place, so like everywhere, life here is once nice another time difficult and tiring. 

But Luxembourg sounds much more interesting than London and UK (to be honest I'm just checking what language you use in your country and how many people you have there, it's so tiny!), I don't know anything about that country but maybe I'm an ignorant ;p you have to forgive me

i see at least two images in one here... one is two fingers( thumb and forefinger) trying to touch clitoris of hairy vagina... second one is looks like female shoulders, neck and chin of a head, which has been ruined by some sort of explosion of thoughts and waves...Still cant get how it has been choosed as DD( usially they choice is much more simple and shallow), but i am glad that this image make some changes...Congratulations!!

fingers, vagina, clitoris... tell me where, I want see it too! Honestly I don't know what they usually choose, I don't spend here a lot of time. Maybe they haven't big choice in crafts, glass etc., I see more digitals, illustrations and traditional painting. And this is reason why I should do stained-glasses, it's easier than painting, this medium isn't so popular so I have bigger chance for selling, contracts, exhibitions... I should think about it in future :) Anyway, thank you!
