Holocaust in Utopia by Mitchellnolte Holocaust in Utopia by Mitchellnolte
Inspired by black metal and Gustave Dore - two big loves - my first attempt at Scratchboard etching - i like it alot and it is great for dark pictures of metaphysical doom - it amazes me how it is that pictures in black and white and chiaroscuro have such a dimension to them - that somehow the pictures can be read metaphorically, symbolically and all else metaphysical as much as or even in precedence to taking the picture literally. -

the name is taken from a song by Ureghal

How much would you charge for a original piece like this in 18"X24" format?
Please respond by note...

It's great seeing artists draw inspiration from Gustave (who is personally one of my favorite artists), and I can see that you have captured his style very well in a way that really speaks

Awesome piece!

I like it not because it's a dark piece because for me that's run of the mill but rather all the scratching you must've done to create this!

the scratch can take a while, though this was pretty rough and i need to spend even longer time in future
