Danny Ingrassia

digital artist

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.

Héctor González Casquete

new media artist

Héctor Gonzalez was born in Valladolid, Spain, in 1978. He studied applied arts, and audiovisual communication, influenced by the Avant-Garde cinematographic aesthetics of the beginning of the XX century. At a later stage, he completed a Master in Media Art and Image Sciences, in an academic approach that has influenced his artistic production. His broad theoretical knowledge and acquaintance of the digital world contribute to the high quality (both visual and concept level) of his works.
Héctor’s projects explore the intersections between technology, science, and humanities, experimenting with different genres like Bio Art, AI Art, and Video Art.

EUDAIMONIA, PSYCHE, SOPHOS, PHILOI are part of the project Computational Æsthetics

Computational Æsthetics looks into new ways of creating GPU optimized models not only suitable for creating images but converting other human ideas into expressive forms – more ‘universal’ than ‘classic’ – that are substantiated with philosophical and ontological values. The artist reflects on the AI-generated images and their latent meanings, visualizing different philosophical concepts, reflecting on the theory of Forms1 and their significances and significants.

Computational Æsthetic is about the creation of philosophical forms that have no clear understanding of what soul means yet but at the same time, they help humans find it. They enhance experiences when they are being used by humans to understand themselves.

ventriloquist

by Danny Ingrassia

We know from the very first moment that this work tells a story. However, this is not an ordinary story, but rather a scary story, like those told to children when they are naughty. This story describes an anecdote about a ventriloquist who once lived in the house shown in the painting. Now that he is long dead, his spirit wanders the corners, scaring visitors or making life difficult for new residents. We only see a fragment of the moment in which it appears. Unfortunately he disappears quickly after.

ghost kid

by Danny Ingrassia

Fans of the horror style should be pleased, because this is another work straight out of a nightmare. The author said that he was creating this work thinking about a girl who died suddenly in a car accident. After her death, she returned home to find her mother. Unfortunately, she did not find her, and the house that was once her oasis was deserted. Since then, she has been wandering from room to room, despairing and longing for the life she has lost. The uniqueness of this work consists primarily in the color operation, as warm colors contrast with an extremely dark message.

close that door right now

by Danny Ingrassia

Each of us knows this feeling when we are in a bright confinement with the door slightly open to the black corridor. Each of us has thought more than once – what is hiding there? But monsters do not exist … What if there were what we can see in the picture? This dark work is very imaginative. Silhouette of the figure standing by the door and description – close this door immediately, as if someone had just noticed it. The author perfectly captures the beginning of the situation straight from the horror film.

inside the walls

by Danny Ingrassia

Something is alive in the walls of the house. Is it dangerous? They look like demons, ghosts and skeletons all at once. They are probably harmless, but it’s not worth getting close. Just in case…

It is an art work that radiates darkness and can scare even the most courageous man. Decorated in dark colors, with a sharp line and strange figures in the center. The drawn Walls are swollen, looking like roots or veins. Everything in this work greatly influences the viewer’s imagination.

beyond the door

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.

supekutoramu

by Danny Ingrassia

A work referring to the extremely popular culture of Japanese horror. These types of monsters, called yōkai, are numerous. Many of them have their own specific name, scare them in a certain way, for example, by sitting on the victim’s back and creating a huge burden. The phantom in the picture comes out of the walls of the rooms and looks at its sleeping victims, but most often it does not hurt them. He revels in fear itself, which it definitely evokes with its gaze. It paralyzes its victims and waits… When it leaves, the paralysis disappears. Its operation is similar to the nightmare, also known as the bane, which we know, for example, from a painting by Johann Füssli.

psyche

by Hegon

Originally, life, spirit, a life-force, and in Greek philosophy, translated as “soul.”

In Homer Psyche can mean “departed spirit, ghost.” In pre-Socratics, it can mean “consciousness”, the “source of life,” and a kind of “primary substance”. For Plato and Aristotle, this is the term used to refer to an immortal, immaterial soul and the defining substance and principle of the human being.

eudaimonia

by Hegon

This is the term commonly translated as happiness but better translated as “human flourishing” –to flourish by realizing one’s ideal end/ goal, by achieving the purpose of human life with excellence or virtue, particularly in the works of Plato and Aristotle.

Eudaimonia comes from “eu” –“good” and “daimon” which is a spirit, even “divine spirit” in human beings.

by Hegon

Wisdom, deep learning. Sophos can also mean a kind of sound judgment, including practical wisdom.

philoi

by Hegon

The meaning of the word Philoi is deeply rooted in the concept of reciprocity; encompassing the exchange of favours and support, in addition to a profound sense of duty to each other.

true love

by Jairo Guerrero

An incredibly engaging image of a woman holding a man’s head. The mysterious nature of the artwork leaves many ways for interpretation and raises many questions. Does the picture present lovers and love even after death? Or maybe the woman is a murderer, as evidenced by her slight smile? However, not much can be read, because the most important part – the face of a woman – is blurry, indistinct.

Through the dark colors, the use of black and red, the author obtained an effect that causes the anxiety in the viewer. The subject matter of the artwork itself brings to mind the theme of Judith beheading Holofernes. This reference to traditional painting shows the multi-threaded-ness of the artwork and the versatility of the artist himself.

no future

by Jairo Guerrero

Painting-window showing a possible future in one single reality – maybe ours? The terrifying  perspective shown on this painting was emphasized by a figure in the center – a disintegrating robot with human (female) shapes, looking the viewer straight in the eyes. The author comments: “We are rusting in the bin of the future”. With that, he stresses that our future can take the shape of a post-apocalyptic rotten world that has collapsed because of mankind’s wrong decisions. This painting is his dystopian vision.

the beyond

by Jairo Guerrero

“The Beyond” is an extremely expressive, downright ravishing artwork. It is an artwork representing a character trying to literally break free from the fetters of hell or purgatory. The creature has human shapes, however, is not fully a human. Rather, an afterimage of what once was a human. Its mimicry and gestures indicate that it is suffering. Under the figure, there are other beings visible, scraps of bodies, skulls…

Looking at this painting, one gets an impression that the depicted figure is a piece of the soul, a human leftover capable of experiencing only negative emotions – pain, fear, suffering. For its creation, the author has used red paint, which symbolizes blood, torment (perhaps also the remnants of humanity) as well as white as a glow symbolizing death, which simultaneously dynamizes the painting. The artwork itself is a representation, as the title suggests, of the afterlife in a macabre version.

saint

by Jairo Guerrero

An intriguing artwork in one, bright, white color, presenting, at the first glance, an angel. However, it is not an angel in the traditional convention, because under its robe you can see not the body, but the skeleton – ribs, pelvis, bones. And although the head and collarbones look like humans’, it can be seen that the figure is actually a creature resembling an angel of death. It has a calm expression on its face and eyes closed. There is a halo of thorns above its head, evoking the symbol of suffering. It is surrounded by creatures that are associated with flies or dragonflies, but with skulls instead of heads. The ambience of the painting is unusual, very uplifting and disturbing at the same time. It evokes iconic representations of saints, which is why the painting has a sacred, though perverse, character.

gravity to the end

by Jairo Guerrero

Maintained in warm, green-golden shades, the artwork clearly indicates two points that are shown as the brightest ones – a sphere reminiscent of a moon and a figure of a girl in a white dress. Despite these points, which could be considered as the most important ones, we also see a dilapidated, as if torn by an invisible force, house.

The melancholic nature of the painting stands in opposition to what really is going on in it. Looking at this painting we can feel a bit nervous, even though, paradoxically, the artwork exudes calmness. Perhaps it is because the luminous figure of the girl is so peaceful. Is that her house? Is she reconciled with its loss? Or maybe she is the perpetrator of its disappearance? The painting has many mysteries in itself that one would like to unravel, its intensity is therefore caused by the unknown that a human naturally wants to overcome through finding out.

the end

by Jairo Guerrero

A picture on the borderline of horror and fantasy. It presents a very dark world invented by the author, in which you can meet creatures with animal faces. We can see one of them on the right side of the painting, next to what looks like a stream of blood. Below there are scattered, decaying bodies of people who died in terror.

This artwork is primarily a vision of a world from a nightmare, extremely macabre, terrifying, and even disgusting. On the other hand, it is an intriguing painting, showing incredible artistic creativity and courage.

ruins

by Jairo Guerrero

The artwork depicting the ruins of a once noble, enormous building – perhaps a basilica or a palace? The walls are green, gnawed by the tooth of time. Birds have taken care of its interior. The author recorded their dynamic poses during flight, which can be seen in the foreground. The building is dark, we are inside. The only source of light is the arch that used to be the entrance and the remains of the mighty stained glass window. Two tiny figures dressed in red cloth attract attention – monks, travelers, pilgrims?

This artwork is another fantastic vision of the future. Perhaps even today? It is something that connects the present with what may happen, or is already happening in front of our eyes. After all, abandoned, overgrown buildings are not something uncommon…

masks

by Philip Hofmänner

The atmosphere of the New York City subway is palpable at first glance. The mysterious figures behind the masks give the work its character and cause anxiety in the viewer. Words such as dynamic work, which shows the rush of the subway, the dirt that is often characteristic of such scenes, and the clear madness of the Joker movie or The Purge Night fit perfectly to describe the mood of this work. Adding to this also the film’s colors, we get a work that seems to be a fragment of a great animation, which we would like to watch.

walpurgis night

by Philip Hofmänner

A beautiful work, which at first glance refers to the well-known work of Joseph Tomanek Fire Dance, and even resembles the even more famous work of Matisse – Dance. It presents, as the title tells us, Walpurgis Night, that is, the night of the dead, which in Europe is associated primarily with the witches’ Sabbath. Dancing over fire has become a frequently repeated, and thus a very interesting motif referring to Germanic culture, used until today by artists of all kinds.

witches in the forest

by Philip Hofmänner

The figures in white dresses dancing in a circle are signed by the author as witches. However, this is not a popular way of presenting witches as beautiful, even innocent beings who celebrate nature. However, the author chose such a performance for a number of reasons. As history tells, witchcraft is not just about this wicked side. It is also a spiritual search, a struggle to maintain harmony, as well as constant change and connection with nature. The author showed it beautifully in the artwork.

peculiar visitor

by Philip Hofmänner

The work presents an extremely interesting scene like from an indie horror game, which draws us in so that we can experience an exciting and terrifying adventure. Great colors created on the basis of contrast, which enhance the atmosphere, keep us in suspense. An overturned frame suggests dynamism and a desire to run away. The red figure, resembling a human figure, glances at the foreground boater with its unnaturally long neck, which gives us shivers. Will he get her?

we are all in this together

by Philip Hofmänner

Interesting work dealing with the issues of extreme wealth and poverty in the world of the future. The image of the rich was presented in the window of an elegant restaurant, it is distinguished by its visible splendor and golden color. The image of poverty, on the other hand, is a man wearing a coverall to ensure his safety (we wonder from what?) and pushing probably the belongings of his life. He looks sadly at the elegant interior from the street. Was it the decisions of the rich that led to this state of affairs?

the human condition

by Philip Hofmänner

Magic artwork with an atmosphere that tries to combine humanity and astrology with technology and robotics. It shows a man with a helmet being guided by a robot dog. You might think: isn’t this a metaphor for the supremacy of technology over humanity? The title of the work itself can also prove it. The beautiful pastel pink and purple colors contrast with the bitter message that beats out of the picture. Or maybe it’s not such a bad message? Who knows what awaits us in the future…
