The Somber Art of Dehn Sora

blut aus nord dehn sora

Vincent Petitjean / Dehn Sora is a French artist, photographer and musician whose work I respect tremendously. I discovered his amazing talent through some of his artworks that decorate among the most creative black metal albums of present day.

His client list include bands like Blut aus Nord and Deathspell Omega who are at the peak of experimental metal. Apart from that, he is also actively involved in making music that range from ambient (Treha Sektori) to dissonant black metal (Throane).

What fascinates me about Dehn Sora’s work is his avant-garde approach of blending photography and photomanipulation to create surrealistic horror imagery. Moreover, the occult appears to be a very prominent part of how his compositions come to life.
