Introducing Cédric De Smedt. Belgian Artist and Illustrator. 

Cédric or also known simply as CDS is an Artist and Illustrator currently studying Art in Brussels. He's also the creator and writer of the Musical/Artistic blog

As always, here at Clutter we love to see what you upcoming artists have to offer and we're pleased to share some of CDS's work with you!


La pleureuse et le volé.

As you can see CDS's work is very striking with contrasting colourschemes. There's a very strong theme of death and torment permeating in his works too with all the dismembered iconography scattered throughout. A touch of Francis Bacon's darkness perhaps? I'm certainly no qualified art critic myself but I find the pieces very stirring, edging on the side of disturbing even, a genuine experience to see!

Good Job Cédric, best of luck wth your studies.

    Psychedelic and spooky, Russian illustrator Anton Semenov's creepy art conjures up all kinds of nightmares for me, but I can't turn my eyes away from it.  I'd be interested to see how he'd handle a comic book cover; something mainstream like Batman perhaps?

    If you are unfamiliar with the work of Spanish artist Juan Francisco Casas than prepare to be blown away! Best known for his recreation of photographs using only ball point pens... yes!
