20 Chilling Horror Themed Oil Paintings That Might Keep You Awake Tonight

Oil Paints are not an easy medium.

We all see youtube videos of people creating a beautiful masterpiece with oil paint and it always looks so easy. However, don’t be deceived by how it looks since it is actually quite hard to get the texture, colors, and the look right and it requires years of training. Especially when it comes to horror themes paintings. Because you have to spend a lot of time on the fine details to really bring the painting to life and actually put fear in the heart of a viewer.

I mean people have become de-sensitized when it comes to horror movies since most of them rely on jump scares to get your adrenaline going. But the real fear is much more complicated than that. The unknown will always bring much more fear than a spiky monster. However, this artist has turned the horror icons we know and love into something more. 

While they may look the same on the surface, there is a lot more spookiness that radiates off the surface. And you can judge that for yourself by scrolling below.

If you actually want to see the texture of the art pieces and thus are not a fan of prints, you can also get the original paintings. However, they are going to be a lot more expensive than the prints. Although you are paying to hang the original in your home, so I would say it is worth it as long as you can afford it.
