Amazing Oil Paintings of Ominous Cityscapes

Inspired by his trips to Hong Kong, Thailand, and China, artist Brian Mashburn is the name behind these gloomy dark skyscapes. To him painting is “the soul of a hopeless romantic and the dark humor of a cynic,” Steven Matijcio, Curator of Contemporary Art SECCA, defines Brian Mashburn’s artwork as consequent states of excess, alienation, degradation, and serenity bleed together in his meticulous oil paintings of gothic beauty. Between grandeur and the grotesque, he presents post-apocalyptic visions of the modern world where nature, culture, and industry engage in an ambivalent endgame. See his bewildering dark cityscapes on canvas here.
