Art: Soren Häxan

'Monstrum', by Soren Häxan; a painting of a hand holding a bleeding orange against a dark background, with gold leaf.

A framed print of Soren Häxan's ink illustration 'Dead Hands' against a dark wood background.

Soren Häxan's painting 'The Spiritualist', surrounded by crystals, dried roses, and plants.
Top to bottom: 'Monstrum', 'Dead Hands', and 'The Spiritualist'.

Until I either hang/frame/do something with the pieces I already have or move into my new flat, I've had to enforce an art ban on myself; no buying any new prints, which I have responded to by... looking at lots of art. I guess the heart wants what the heart wants. 

The most recent of my guilty late night binges is the work of Soren Häxan, Washington-based artist and writer. Häxan's oil paintings and ink illustrations blend illness, the abhuman and the occult, and homoeroticism to create unique works on faith and sexuality.

As well as prints and original artworks, you can also find hand bound books and patches in Häxan's etsy store, The Hands of the Corpse (warning: some art NSFW). Additionally, keep an eye out for his soon-to-be-published book, Our Queen Milk.

All images by Soren Häxan. Soren is also on twitter (where he's a joy to follow), as am I! Has anyone else found any new art recently? Let me know below!

  1. Beautiful! Häxan is a swedish word meaning; the witch

    1. Haha, having followed Soren for a while, I'm not even remotely surprised he chose that as a name!

  2. I love how versatile he is across the different mediums

    1. I know what you mean - he frames his work himself too (which I've always found a nightmare).

  3. Oh wow, I'm definitely going to follow him on Twitter and add him to my Etsy favourites, so I can more easily follow his work. I find it very fascinating to look at :)

  4. That first one! So simple but so dark and kind of frightening!
