Dark as death: artworks by S.V.Mitchell

Mitchell was born in Bristol England in 1963. He spent his child hood growing up in the south west of England. At 29 a drinking binge ended in a hospitalization and a near death ”Bardo” experience, in witch he was graced with a moment of clarity into his condition. This became the spark to ignite his recovery turning his life around and creating the Art we see today.

Beautiful Black and White landscapes by Derek Toye

This is exactly what we (Republic X) is trying to do!!! …to show you such beautiful works of artists like this, who are not so well known (in my opinion, at least). And that, actually, was my first thought: ummm… and why I don’t know about him, again? 

Derek Toye is 29 years old Canadian artist, who is self taught artist. He started taking photography about a year ago!! Seriously? Wow. Maybe I look way too exited here… but, hey, look! It’s obvious what a great talent this author has.

Derek Jones paints messy but wonderful portraits 

The artist with his own style and mood that can be felt through the color. Derek Jones is based in Scotland and he is painting wonderful, dark and messy portraits. Sometimes they remind me something related to women abuse topic. However, maybe it’s just me. And that’s the point actually: everyone can understand a little bit different these paintings.

Dark digital art by Dihaze

Artist Dihaze keeps personal information as a little secret. For me, it is still unknown from where this author is, what is the real name and etc. What I know is that Dihaze’s dark digital art makes me feel spooky and at the same time amazed by authors creativity and imagination. The surrealism plays a huge role in author’s artworks.
