Whether realistic or abstract artworks, line, as the most fundamental element in the painting, has the power to simply and directly express one’s feelings and emotions. In Line Drawing In Dark Stories, we will gather talented artists from all over the world together to showcase their awesome and impressive dark illustrations, hoping to let more and more people catch on to the charm of the dark art and, find out those stunning forgotten masterpieces.

TABLE OF CONTENTS

chapter one: queer · fantasy
Many artists draw inspiration from religious stories, myths, and legends, and through perception and interpretation, distill those utopian words about supernatural power and other worlds into intuitive artistic expressions that provide readers with a vivid visual experience.

chapter two: cruel · evil
Artists are keen to incorporate evil and enchanting style materials into their paintings, resulting in visual symbols that combine beauty and evil in an attempt to lead the viewer into a contemplative space.

chapter three: weird · absurd
Hieronymus Bosch, a Dutch painter, is regarded as an important enlightener of surrealism in the twentieth century, as well as the muse of inspiration for many contemporary dark surreal artists.

chapter four: fear · skull
Skull is the most intriguing but misunderstood symbol. It appears to be a morbid obsession with death, even the Grim Reaper, but it actually has a positive meaning and connotation, an artistic and symbolic way of irony to remind the world to live life to the fullest.

絕大多數的經典藝術作品中,無論是中世紀的壁畫,文獻中的插圖,抑或是當代的造型藝術,都能窺見“暗夜”的身影。 從古典時代流傳至今的文集、諷刺文學、神秘學乃至民俗故事等等,所有一切與“光明”相悖的神話傳說和歷史事件,都能成為暗夜美學的養分,給予藝術家們靈感與能量,孕育一批又一批“美得極致”的藝術傑作。在本書中,我們邀請了來自全球各地的才華橫溢的藝術家,在《暗夜之歌——藝術暢想集》中展示他們那些美得讓人窒息的“暗夜”風格線條畫,希望能讓更多人覺察到黑白藝術的魅力,發現那些被遺忘的傑作。

窺探暗黑美學的那些衰亡與復活的自然循環,感受藝術畫作中超精細的筆觸手法。

目錄

第一章 怪異·幻想
諸多藝術家都會從事宗教故事、神話傳說中汲取靈感、經過感悟和解讀,將那些對超自然力量、異世界的空想文字提煉成直觀的藝術表達,給讀者註入生動形象的視覺體驗。
第二章 冷酷·邪魅
藝術家們熱衷於將邪魅風格素材融入畫中,創造出集美與惡於一身的視覺符號,試圖以此帶領觀者進入沉思的空間。
第三章 詭異·荒謬
荷蘭畫家耶羅尼米斯·博斯被譽為20世紀超現實主義的重要啟蒙者,也是當下眾多暗黑超現實藝術家的“靈感繆斯”。
第四章 恐懼·骷髏
“骷髏”是最迷人卻又最容易被誤解的象徵符號。它看起來毛骨悚然,會讓人覺得這是藝術家們對死亡:甚至死神)的病態痴迷,實則具有積極的意義和內涵,是一種充滿藝術性和象徵性的反諷方式,以提醒世人要活得充實。
