Charlie Immer is a painter. He lives in Maryland.
'My concepts come from my fascination with anatomy and my love of candy and toys. I have so much fun creating the blood and bones of my characters. The contrast of the smooth bodies and the complex systems beneath spilling out is very appealing to me. As I’m painting I also try to assign flavors to my characters like blueberry and green apple.'
I love these paintings. There is very creative world building going on within them. A sort of logic of how these undead hordes of candy-coated skeletons exist and co-mingle. They are all cute and some are genuinely gross. Genuinely disturbing. It's awesome. Perfectly crossing fantasy, surrealism, cartoons and like a photo-real still life awareness of materials and color a classic oil painter. Very unique, very fun work. And the colors are just mouth watering.
