Having spent so long on the peripheries of the art world, Gothic art has finally broken into the mainstream, proving that its depths hide far more colour and diversity than most would ever have imagined. Gothic Art Now brings the very best in dark artwork into the light in one visually stunning volume, gathering artists from across the globe and revealing their exciting and dynamic new imagery. Gothic Art Now showcases the Gothic world in all its many and varied forms - from the conventional media of paint and pencil, to digital nightmares, abstract sculptures and provocative toys. Laden with dark beauties and brooding be-fanged beaus, the artworks are divided by genre: Romantic and Sensual images of embracing lovers, the surreal and twisted worlds of Gothic Horror, and the harsh mechanical and digital dystopias of Cyber and Industrial art. Amongst many others, the charmingly wicked works of Anne Stokes andDorian Cleavenger, the surrealist horror of Brom and the sculptures of H.R. Giger display every branch of this twisted tree.
