Project: Thursday’s Artist Spotlight
Good day Creatures and welcome to our Artist Spotlight feature. Every Thursday we will highlight a new creative talent, introduce their work and tell you a bit about them.
Today we would like to introduce something a little different, something that caught our eye, made us stop and think and something that evoked a mixed bag of emotions in each of us. Wolpertinger Paintings by Alexander Heaton.
When these images landed at Creaturemag it was difficult to put my finger on exactly how they made me feel, it was such a mixed bag of dreamlike confusion. There was agitation, I was instantly repulsed and slightly intimidated, then on further contemplation I was strangely drawn to these odd hybrids. I felt fear but also affection, disgust as well as intrigue. They are of course fictional beasts but the manner in which they are presented make them seem very real. Whatever your emotional response to these paintings we hope you can appreciate their character and the mythical origins of their existence. So what exactly is a Wolpertinger? Over to Alex for some enlightenment.

Artist: Marc M Gusta
Marc says: “You and me and the devil makes three, this is Heaven and Hell Labyrinth Part1 (Infierno). Take a walk through hell and back to life!”
Welcome back to the M Gusta’s Labyrinths. Every other Wednesday Marc will be challenging the readers of Creaturemag with a new Labyrinth. Two weeks ago we came up against massive reptiles as we navigated through the narrow rivers of “The Labyrinth Of The Great Crocodile“. This time Marc takes us to Hell and back in his Heaven and Hell Labyrinth pt1: Infierno. Beware of The Great Golden Demon. We encourage you to interact with his art, take a break from your daily routine and try to solve these mind bending puzzles and make it through the Labyrinth alive! Take care and beware of The Great Golden Demon.
Don’t lose yourself!
