The Paintings of Children’s Nightmares by Guillermo Lorca

Chilean artist Guillermo Garcia-Huidobro Lorca possesses an incredible vision, capturing the awful nature of nightmares. In his painting series, featured here, he seems to narrate the scary and inexplicable dreams the children might experience. Although the artwork represents the horrible scenes, it is amazingly rendered with great details — complete with vulnerable children, animals, blood, fire, smoke and chaos.

Please scroll down and enjoy the paintings — and nightmares, too!   🙂
