Otto Dix

Stormtroops advancing under a gas attack] 1924 etching,

The artwork of a man called Otto Dix caught my eye and was sort of an inspiration for some of my ideas. Otto Dix (1891-1969), was a German Expressionist who had fought and survived the war, he was famous for his unique and grotesque style. The paintings I focused on were mainly about war and are somewhat creepy. Not the sort of thing you would want to hang on your bedroom wall but perfect reference material for my project.
