Cthulhu commands the sea

Cthulhu Commands the Sea

Piece description from the artist

This is an original surrealism fantasy oil painting by Christopher Clark, fine artist. HP Lovecraft gave us a fantastical world of science fiction in the early-mid 1900s, and his most enduring character by far is Cthulhu. Part man, octopus, and dragon, Lovecraft described the character to induce madness just by looking upon him. I wanted to paint him just because of the sheer challenge of painting such a fantastical creature – very unlike anything I'd previously done. This piece was created for Comicon 2016 in Denver.

About Christopher Clark

Denver, CO

Christopher Clark specializes in oil paintings of many subjects: romance, dancing, music, Italy, animals, and cityscapes. His impressionist style is compelled by bold brushwork, brilliant colors, and a luminous sense of light.

Christopher Clark has studied art his entire life, ever since he was a boy watching Bob Ross painting shows on TV (that wacky guy with the afro painting "happy little trees"). His art studies and travels have taken him all over the world in pursuit of culture, art knowledge, and painting subjects.

Christopher's favorite subject to paint is light itself, meaning anything becomes a beautiful subject if the light is stunning. Christopher's paintings are collected all over the world, and he is available for commissions of all kinds.
