Zdzislaw Beksinski: Dystopian Surrealism in Games
4 May, 2016
Opinion

The most recent Warhammer 40K Dawn of War III trailer reminded us about the amazing Zdzislaw Beksinski. This is one of the few relatively modern artists, who managed to have a profound effect on game art in general.

Beksinski was a master of so called “dystopian surrealism”. His iconic dark images became a reference point for hundreds of game artists. You can easily Beksinski’s influence in Destiny, Dark Souls, Bloodborne, Witcher 3 and so many others. There’s even a separate title Tormentum, which lets you step into the surrealistic world of his works.

Alas Zdzislaw Beksinski is no longer with us. He was murdered in 2005 by two teenagers, who stabbed him 17 times! He lived to see his beloved wife die and his son commit suicide. Not the happiest of destinies.
