Italian artist Matteo Massagrande paints alluring photorealistic paintings depicting haunting interiors in varying states of deterioration.
In his compositions, he blends late 19th-century Italian Realism with contemporary photorealism and Renaissance art techniques. The use of light, the subtle color palette, and the cinematic perspective suggest these desolate places were once full of life.
Although the abandoned buildings and places may look sad and desolated for some people, others may find beauty and harmony in these spaces. If you belong to the second group, be sure to check Matthias Haker’s captivating photographs, in which he captures the fascination of deserted interiors.
