Description

A unique collection of high-quality drawings embraces the author’s numerous interpretations of Satan and the demons. They vary from classic forms such as pentagon and 666 to more elaborate monograms, based on various types, retro styles and decorative compositions, and combine several techniques, from more traditional drawings in dark brown ink, to art deco forms, and vividly coloured modern images, ornated with metallic colours.

The images include among others Buer in a shape of a pentagon, Behemoth, based on the Collin de Plancy’s Dictionnaire Infernal, from 1863, a modern version of the demon Ipès, based on the same work, Moloch (Molech, Molek) in bright red and gold colours, Hitler and Stalin as modern age demons, and various other dark spirits represented trough monograms and highly decorative forms.

The images are painted in an art nouveau album, but could be, despite their deceiving art deco forms, be dated in the second half of the 20th century due to the forms of some of the images and colouring.
