Perhaps his paintings are not for the faint of heart, but if you're like me and like art with a sinister edge, take a look at the work of French artist Guillaume Bresson.
Bresson's sombre paintings are like choreographed scenes of urban violence. Painted in a dark and monochrome palette, his subjects lurk in the shadows of dimly lit parking garages or they riot in the streets. Despite the violence of many of his scenes which include muggings and beatings, we appreciate the fact that his paintings still manage to retain some of the grace that can be found in staged dance routines (click on images for detailed view).
