Charlie Immer is a 1983-born artist based in Brooklyn, New York. He hold a BFA in illustration from the Rhode Island School of Design. His colorful paintings and illustrations depict a surreal universe of poppy creatures engaged in violent actions uncovering underneath the cute surface anatomical layers of a gory aesthetic.

In an interview with Sunrise Artists, Charlie explains:

“My concepts come from my fascination with anatomy and my love of candy and toys.  I have so much fun creating the blood and bones of my characters. The contrast of the smooth bodies and the complex systems beneath spilling out is very appealing to me.”

This contrast adequately calls for a parallel with the grotesque nature of a carnival. Make sure you also check out his blog and follow him on Twitter to stay updated on his shows and print releases: @SkeletonSlime

Charlie Immer è un artista nato nel 1983 con sede a Brooklyn, New York. Ha conseguito un BFA in illustrazione alla Rhode Island School of Design. I suoi colorati dipinti ed illustrazioni raffigurano un universo surreale di creature papavero impegnati in azioni violente, sotto gli strati superficiali carini una estetica anatomica cruda. In un’intervista con Sunrise Artists, Charlie spiega: “I miei concetti mi vengono dal fascino per l’anatomia e il mio amore per le caramelle e giocattoli. Mi diverte così tanto creare il sangue e le ossa dei miei personaggi. Il contrasto dei corpi lisci e dei sistemi complessi dell’organismo è molto attraente per me. ”
