German photographer Patrick Hübschmann captures the unearthly feel of frozen trees in Winter in his series, Frost. The collection captures the moody feel of a dusky, frozen landscape. The half light and lacy effects of the delicate, icy branches lend to the feel of the supernatural. If I had to pick a mythological place for […]
Lars Henkel has received awards and recognition from around the world for his vintage inspired ink and digital illustrations with a ghostly and ethereal look. Each illustration seems to be a glimpse through the fog or a clue to a mysterious past. This mysterious quality keeps me coming back for more, hoping to find the answers, but knowing the mystery is the answer itself.
Northern Californian Rogelio Manzo’s translucent images see through the people he creates. Brushstrokes show ghostly movement while the paint simultaneously disfigures the images. Each layer, like years in time, leaves an indelible mark on the visage of that persona. This layering and slow, meaty disintegration, speaks to a commonality of humankind. The images are futuristic yet past tense and conjure a modern day Dorian Gray. We are given a glimpse of the future. In it, an undeniable beauty of the decay.

For the Amsterdam Light Festival this year, a ghostly ship apparition appeared on the city’s waters with tremendous effect. Installed by Romania-based architecture collective visualSKIN, the three-dimensional 17th century ‘Ghost Ship’, as it is called, was conjured up using two intersecting images projected onto perpendicular curtains of water that allows it to be appreciated from […]
You’re too late. It has been bought by Oracle Design for this princely sum this year, which will see the ghostly mansion restored and redeveloped into apartments. Called the Ouerbacker-Clement House, this Halloweenish mansion was owned by a coffee merchant named Samuel Ouerbacker in the late 19th century in what was a very fashionable neighborhood of Louisville, Kentucky.
This sure is some creepy street art! Painted in a ward of an abandoned psychiatric hospital in Parma, Italy, these ghostly shadows bleed away from derelict wheel chairs and through cracking doorways. Created by street artist Herbert Baglione, there was obviously no shortage of creepiness before he arrived to create these paintings.
There’s nothing better than a scary commercial and this one straight from Japan is making the rounds…and scaring people like never before. So much so that the commercial comes with an advisory warning before screening, asking viewers to refrain from viewing if they have any mental or health concerns, or those that may see a […]
