“ZombieScapes”

Dawn Of The Dead

That’s the name of painting series by George Pfau, who created “a suite of abstract paintings that transform terrifying scenes from the most famous zombie films into landscape art.” How Pfau describes his artwork:

I love the loss of control that happens when translating from film, to digital format, to still image, to oil painting, to photograph. While it’s hard to pick favorites, the ones of the interior and exterior of the mall in George Romero’s Dawn of the Dead led to a lot of unexpected color combinations, weird pinks, purples, etc. One of my favorite Romero films is Land of the Dead, for his portrayal of the zombie proletariat rising up against Dennis Hopper and his elite 1 percent enclave. I’ve got some Land of the Dead paintings in the works.
