Dieselpunks

Dieselpunk + Steampunk Culture

Violence, wild eroticism, dark atmosphere characterize the artwork of Jean-Claude Claeys. Hyperrealistic images in China ink perfectly fit the black&white imagery of postwar movies.

Fine drawings, perfect sense of scene.

Jean-Pierre Tamine: "Claeys' illustrations and comic strips first and foremost reflect the artist's fascinations, things that haunt him, his inner world."

Women are always beautiful - for Claeys, beauty and death are inseparable.

Jean-Claude Claeys, born in 1951, is the author of numerous book covers, comic strips and illustrations. His artwork is both brutal and elegant. Pulp de Luxe, Exquisite Noir.

As a Photoshop guy, I always love it when I see a piece and can say "I know exactly how he did that, but that artist really put their heart into it to come out with a piece of art that good."

I'm sure his early drawings were executed with the help of photo enlarger. It was a popular technique in 1960s and 70s. I'm also sure Claeys began to use PS as soon as the software was available.
