Sunday Evening Art Gallery — James Lipnickas

James Lipnickas, a New Haven, Connecticut-based artist, creates towering sci-fi structures filled with futuristic labs, clashes with aliens, and massive laser beams shooting from rooftops.Working in graphite, Lipnickas uses heavy shading to shroud his architectural renderings in mystery and unfamiliarity as tentacled creatures crack through the walls and humans become science experiments.Mystery is a strong theme in his work.

He has always gravitated towards reading and watching stories involving detectives, the supernatural and the unexplained (UFOs).Amidst the machines and eerie contraptions, the artist interrupts each building with a level containing a garden bed or an illuminated tree grove.He finds inspiration in his wandering mind, envisioning absurd events that could occur in ordinary situations.His black-and-white images are set in rural environments, where cabins and lone wanderers are beset by tentacled, multi-dimensional beasts that seem curious or passively destructive.“The future holds many unknowns (technology and lifeforms).  We can’t forget the natural world while we move further from it,” Lipnickas shares.More of James Lipnickas‘s magical sketches can be found at
