Art: Check out Daniel Zender’s wonderful nightmare paintings

Brooklyn-based illustrator and graphic designer Daniel Zender has something of a fixation upon things that go bump in the night; so much so that he has created an entire project devoted to them. Light Terrors is a series of images depicting dream-like states and the nightmares that accompany them, from losing teeth to drowning in a mysteriously water-filled bed and being melted by a spooky-looking witch. His bold, bright, graphic shapes may undermine the scariness of the characters featured but they sure are nice to look at, and his client list, which includes publications from Bloomberg Businessweek and the New York Times Book Review, proves that we aren’t the only ones who think so.
