MICHAEL HUTTER‘s paintings are full of the kind of imagery that I dig, from sex, death, and erotica, to demons. His work reminds me of some of my favorite artists, but he flips the script with his own vision, which is enchanting. HUTTER’s visuals are full of layers to lose yourself in and also have the power to melt your mind in the process.
Check out what he has to say in his own words:
“I don’t care for reality or the probability that something is true, only for its potential to stimulate my thought. In my opinion, the truth is somehow an illusion anyway. I mix that with my obsession, passions, desires, and fears and choke what happens in the abyss of my personality back on the surface.”

Death eavesdropping on Lovers.”
“Die Hexenwippe” (“The Witches Seesaw”).
“Hide and Seek in the Devils Garden.”
“Keeper of the Paradise.”
