#Art of Fantasy 63: Christoph Peters Von Sperling

ra_by_trejoeeee-d86t01sI have another wonderful artist for you today. Christoph Peters Von Sperling hails from Chile and is one of those artists that make you swivel your head every time you see his work.

Below is a small sampling of Christoph’s work. Each image links back to the gallery of origin. Enjoy!

In retrospect, “wonderful” might be the wrong adjective here. Christoph uses a lot of detail in his work, and he highlights some of that detail with dynamic lighting, but most are hidden in the shadows of what seems encroaching darkness, and that means you won’t always see the detail unless you take a moment.

I love his work because of all the detail in his paintings and because of the muted colors that still hold their vibrancy, despite the darkness.

Let me know your thoughts in the comments and don’t forget to check out my Art of Science Fiction post over on Kōsa Press.

Until next time.

  1. Really like this one. I like the details, that make his painting so busy. And I like the monochromatic effect on most of them. There is something intriguing in jamming details in a monochromatic composition. I’m not sure I can explain this 🙂
