Femininity & Monsters by Miles Johnston

source: Miles Johnston

Juxtaposition is essential is any visual art and it’s no exception in these meticulously drawn illustrations by UK artist Miles Johnston. The theme of his work tends to revolve around a feminine figure being shrouded by maimed devilish ghouls; it’s just like a Boschian nightmare but more sexually titillating. Johnston’s impressive portfolio showcases his artful ability with colour but his knack is for charcoal. Looking at them, the charcoal rendering of literal Beauty and the Beast themes could either be etched into your subconscious and give you terrifying dreams or you can just admire the laboured details.
