Dark and surreal artworks, pieces from my world.

|Pictures from other artists, inspirations, artwork I like.|
I was interested in arts since the childhood, but I started drawing at the age of 16. It was just a hobby, but I wanted to improve my skills, so I practiced a lot, and studied arts in the local college. I graduated in 2009 as teacher of visual arts with bachelor degree. This is my casual job nowadays.
In the first few years I only preferred black and white techniques, but my newer works are rather acrylic paintings. I like the strong shadings and color contrasts, which make the image more powerful, dynamic and expressive (instead of the contemporary minimalistic trends). Besides this, I also do digital art, especially manipulations from my own photos (no stocks, only own material). I have a photo account here: th0m4sph0t0.deviantart.com
I prefer dark and surreal themes, because this is where I find myself and where I can express my feelings, even they are positive or negative. The so-called "dark and sick side" is also a part of human nature, so I think it has to be the part of art, too.
And I'm still trying to be better and better, going on my own way, searching for inspirations and artists who have similar view.
Thanks for the attention!
Requests which I cannot or do not accept:
- manga/anime - not my cup of tea, sorry
- photorealism - totally respect this style, but I have no ability to do it
- anything politics-related stuff: my art has no relation with any side of politics, no right or left wing, nor any "-ism". I have my own views, but don't want them to be related with art
- serious digital art - currently I use a 7-years old craptop and the cheapest Wacom tablet, bought in a second-hand shop. It's ok for general purposes, but not for professional digital art. As soon as possible, I'll update my gear
- cubism, abstract, conceptual contemporary art, minimalism - also really not my style, not my world, not my view
