Are There Vampire Artists?

Absolutely there are. There are tons. When you live this long, art becomes an inevitable fact of un-life. When you have this much time on your hands, you can't help but create. But humans don't always know which of their favourite renaissance artists were vampires and I'm not here to out anyone.

So What's This Page About?

My favourite pieces of visual art of vampires, of course! There are sections on this site for music and books too. Visual art is a whole different ballgame though. We'll tackle it by style.
