Rai Escalere's Haunting Wedding Portraits

September 04, 2013

Rai Escalere is a painter who works between Barcelona and Bratislava. Half of the Miroir Noir Group with Milos Koptak, Escalere is immersed entirely in the world of group and solo art endeavors. This series of haunting paintings explores and respresents the tension of people during what they call "the most beautiful day of my life"--their weddings. The themes of purity and innocence begin to blur as saints and martyrs become prostitutes, dead brides and spectral spirits.
