The title of this work really adds to the repulsive setting of the art it's self.
My god i'd be terrified to have that decaying bastard next to me! :lmao:

Cancer scares the fuck out of me, yet this guy is poking fun at it... (or himself). beautiful morbidity. the total meat of the subconcious. so good it hurts. over.

It's a really great painting, i get this eerie feeling watching it. Have you ever seen the works of Zdzisław Beksiński? He has some paintings of the same fashion.
kalastaja774 Featured By Owner Jul 12, 2009
And now that i checked your profile out, i feel like an idiot. :D

Ha ha. Thanks.
shorty-shit Featured By Owner Sep 3, 2008
is this, by chance, based off of the big fat ugly monsters from silent hill 3? they were called cancer-somethings; i don't really recall. they definately had a similar distortion.
piscefaire Featured By Owner Jul 8, 2008
the theme is interesting and it looks to me as if you're poking fun at a horrible situation to ease the seriousness of it....well thats what I see in the facial expression of your creation, i could be wrong...amazing work!!

When a macbre surreal painting has me looking away and then coming back too it over and over again, the ambivolence. Because I love the challange of understanding my inner disturbances. Why does it effect me? What part of myself to I need to explore more? This is what makes me love your art so much.

Thanks my man, for creating some really fucked up shit that moves me.

This is absolutely wonderful!
I thought this looked familiar though...
Are you a member of Beinart?
I know I've seen your work somewhere but I can't put my finger on it.
And to add to it, it's owned by a member of my favorite band!
AWESOME! I can't express how amazing your paintings are.
chetzar Featured By Owner Jun 22, 2008  Professional General Artist

MissAlliferMartha Featured By Owner Jun 22, 2008
Thought so! :] Thank you for answering so quickly.
Once again, wonderful work!

You have an amazing talent. And to have some of your work owned by Tool? Wow. My favourite band of all time. Well done :)

My favourite. I never knew you had a dA, but keep em coming, you're awesome.

show this to every smoker XD

I love he looks so proud of having a hole in his face!
NinaGrace Featured By Owner Feb 23, 2008  Professional Traditional Artist
This is beautifully done. Your explanation of his obliviousness to his state, stupidly grinning as though he is "winning the game of life" while his face rots off, make perfect sense when looking at the piece. As an american, I can say that you are spot on (i.e. quite accurate) with the attitude. Obviously, we aren't all like that (just like the population of any given country, there are variations in attitudes and beliefs)...I guess what I'm trying to say is we aren't ALL assholes :giggle: though I understand the generalization.

Thank you for sharing your amazing art and mind with us here. It's a privilege to see. :hug:
SteelTheUnbreakable Featured By Owner Feb 5, 2008

Thats what cancer is, eating at you like a parasite.

Its almost as if he's trying to scare you, smiling and doing something with this fingers.
chetzar Featured By Owner Aug 15, 2007  Professional General Artist
many people have given me different ideas about it and they are all valid with this kind of surrealism, i think. my idea though, was that he is a fool. the earth is barren behind him, chemtrails in the sky, cancer hole in his face from god knows what chemicals in the water and the coneheaded fool thinks he is winning the game of life, sticking his tongue out at you, the viewer. kinda like americans ;p
Miss-Nubcake Featured By Owner Jun 8, 2009
Chemtrails, :) At least someone else believes!
ttmab7 Featured By Owner Aug 12, 2007
This disturbs me on so many levels. That's a compliment, by the way. :-)
chetzar Featured By Owner Aug 12, 2007  Professional General Artist
thanks, that's how i took it.
mesmeric-revelation Featured By Owner Aug 5, 2007

natov Featured By Owner Aug 5, 2007
I envy Adam, he's got this picture, 'cause it's one of the best works I have seen.

Keep going this way man.
InsgesamtIngobert Featured By Owner Aug 4, 2007
oh man, this kinda scares me off. That's horrific! But very well done too! :D

(ok, after browsing your gallery, I think I'll have some nightmares tonight ;))
jl-cominatto Featured By Owner Aug 4, 2007
Oh, it's so perfect. Congratulations for you great job. :~
21citrouilles Featured By Owner Aug 4, 2007
What a nightmare...You're really defining horror in large scope.
Mlle-Airas Featured By Owner Aug 4, 2007
I don't know if it's the good interpretation, but, when I see this drawing I think cancer is making fun of the person that he's killing (as if he said "you can't destroy me hahaha"), and he is ugly like that terrible illness.

It's really frightening and very well done

(sorry for my bad english)
jvgce Featured By Owner Aug 4, 2007
U make cancer a funny thing and this is a great drawing.......:)
TeuvoH Featured By Owner Aug 4, 2007  Professional General Artist
