Zdzisaw Beksiski”s paintings are more than a little creepy. You might call them downright disturbing. Beksiski was a Polish painter and sculptor who specialized in the field of “Utopian Art.” For years, Beksiski made a life for himself creating his unique brand of grim, gothic paintings.

Things took a sharp turn for Beksiski in the late 1990s. His wife died in 1998, and his son committed suicide on Christmas Eve 1999. Beksiski never recovered from the death of his son. A little over five years later in February 2005, Beksiski was murdered in his Warsaw apartment. He received 17 stab wounds, two of which proved fatal. With such a tragic ending, it”s no wonder that Beksiski works are so strangely creepy.
