Chet Zar’s ‘All Hallows Eve’ @ Copro Gallery

Copro Gallery has unleashed Chet Zar’s ‘All Hallows Eve’ solo art exhibition which opened with a fabulous Halloween Costume Party on 18 October! Chet reveals his preternatural body of works with paintings that pay homage to the Celtic traditional holiday of Samhain, ‘All Hallowtide‘ – the ‘Feast of the Dead’, when the dead revisited the mortal world.

This masterful body of  work shadows the psyche of this exceptional artist and shrouds the viewer with  his perception of this Feast of the Dead holiday . Chet Zar has many strings to his bow, including special effects/make up artist, designer and sculptor on epic films including, “The Ring”, “Hell Boy I & II” and “Planet of the Apes”.

“To achieve a cohesive visual style, I took inspiration from horror illustration from the 60’s. I used cool colors similar to the covers of many of the ghost story books I used to read as a kid. My overall concept was to merge these influences into my own style of dark surrealism and create something that is both nostalgic and modern at the same time. I have always dreamed of creating a series of paintings inspired by my love of Halloween and “All Hallows’ Eve” is my tribute and realization of this dream for my favorite Holiday” ~ Chet Zar
