Magical & Disturbing Dream-Like Nude Oil Paintings
Erik Thor Sandberg produces paintings that could be easily mistaken for the work of surrealist masters of old. Filled with nude figures and brutal violence, Sandberg's work weirdly sums up contemporary life as we understand it.
Trained as a traditional oil painter, Sandberg's work nods at more traditional work while simultaneously pushing the envelope. His work is anything but tame.
Sandberg's themes are age-old. Vice and virtue war with each other in these strange, nightmare-scapes. Humans embrace their more animalistic side while animals observe the chaos.
Perhaps Sandberg sums up his preferred content best on his Facebook page. His list of interests as follows: "Dead things, naked things, vintage things, antique things, disturbingly cute things, acutely disturbing things."
