Existential drawings by New Haven-based artist James Lipnickas that evokes an air of mystery and intrigue. The strange and unusual has often fascinated Lipnickas and is often the subject of his drawings, having read or watched stories about hauntings, unexplained phenomenon and disappearances. Ideas tend to come to him when everything is still and quiet stating that "something about the shadows and the silence always gets my imagination going."
I am inspired by mystery because it comes in many forms. When I see something as ordinary as a tree, an old house or an open landscape, my imagination becomes overrun with ideas and my mind begins to wander. What if there was a monster roaming the fields, a vague stranger walking through the night or a beam of light shooting from a house?See more of James Lipnickas' work on Behance or at his website.
