Man, Myth and the Macabre: The Art of Denis Forkas Kostromitin

Denis Forkas Kostromitin currently resides in Moscow, Russia. His work is exquisite and could sit quite comfortably next to the work of William Blake with a clear love for the romantic age whilst gently weaving in elements of the macabre, death, religion and folklore. It is a beautifully dark world that one can lose themselves in.
