The Haunting Work of Vasilis Avramidis

There's something really beautifully haunting about the work of artist Vasilis Avramidis. Drawing inspiration from gardens and plant life, he created a stunning series of fantastical oil paintings that are on the dark, somber side. I loved the look of overgrowth, how all the plants and moss just keep going, despite the best efforts of the gardeners. It's a sober reminder of how everything will just continue to go on, how life will move on, no matter what we try to do to stop or change it. Be sure to check out Avramidis' site for more of his great work!

More paintings after the break!
