All artworks originate from private collections.

Polish surrealist Boleslaw Biegas created many artworks in paint and in sculpture. It was, of course, his series of fantastically bizarre vampire themed paintings that appealed to me the most. Where the traditional depictions of vampires portray humanoid bat like creatures, Biegas carried through a wild bestiary of intepretations.. insect vampires, winged camel vampires, elephant vampires, and so on.

Many thanks to Krzysztof from the Boleslaw Biegas website for providing these larger versions of the artworks! See more Biegas artwork at the site.
