by Danny Ingrassia
The style characteristic for the author, straight from the horror film, draws us into the picture and makes us feel anxious from the very beginning. The illustration shows a ghost-like figure or a demon that just appears or disappears in a doorway. House shown in the picture is old, abandoned and apparently – haunted. We see cobwebs in dark and gloomy room. There is, however, a light in the hall. The atmosphere is dense. The only way out of the terrifying room is blocked by the ghost described earlier.
The art work in its message is simple and raw, but very dark. However, this illustration creates the ideal atmosphere for creating a story through interpretation. It’s also satisfying for people who love the horror genre.
Danny was born in Palermo, Italy. He started drawing as a child, which turned out to be his passion and he continues to develop it until today. During his adolescence, he attended an art school, and after graduating, he began his career as a tattoo artist. In the meantime, he decided to also start the Comics School in Palermo, from where he graduated and started his professional career. After this however, he decided that his destiny was not comics or tattooing, but creating illustrations. That was the time when his interest in dark art and horror surfaced. This particular passion for the genre of horror and cinema in general is clearly visible in his illustrations. Through a unique graphic design, the artist brings scary visions to life and tells entire stories with a single image. He is also known for creating scary reproductions of classic masterpieces such as the Mona Lisa or The Girl with a Pearl Earring. Today he works as an illustrator for companies and as a freelancer.
