Folk Art and Forteana Collide in the Work of Jacob Petersson

Picture: Jacob Petersson (C)

Swedish prop artist Jacob Petersson combines elements of cryptozoology, folkore and folk art to create nightmarishly curious objets d’art. The “Sasquatch Hand” featured here is just one of many unique pieces featured at his website “CURIOMIRA“, which is definitely worth a visit if you’re a fan of art and the unknown.

    This is really just tragic.

    The painting depicted in the photograph clearly shows the poor creature was merely reaching out to that axe-wielding sociopath for a hug.

  2. does a velveteen Evils painting from Tijuana fit this genre?
