Artist 42: Clive Barker

Barker was born in 1952 in Liverpool, England.

Clive Barker describes his work as unseen fantasy coexisting with our own reality. Regardless of how distorted and deformed his characters are they always portray very real human emotions. His work ranges from shocking to humorous, simple to complex. His mediums and working sizes are just as diverse, ranging from sketches, to oils, to illustrations, and from thumbnails to 6 feet wide.

His painting first started appearing in a fan club magazine called Dreaded, which was dedicated to his already acclaimed horror stories. His artwork is currently displayed at theBert Green Fine Art Gallery in Los Angeles, California. He has produced a few video games which have a fairly loyal following, the most well known of which are Clive Barker's Undying and CLive Barker's Jericho.

On top of being a visual artist, he's also an author and film director. He came to public prominence during the 1980s when he published his first book of short horror stories. His most famous work is the Hellraiser series.

Here are some of his works;
