- Apocalypse Art: A special section on Global Art Junkie
An Apocalypse. The Rapture. The Mayan Prophecy. Judgment Day. Armageddon. The puzzle of how and when (and if) the world will end has consumed artists through every civilization. The visual arts authenticate our fixation on Doomsday, giving form to endless prophecies of destruction, paired with heroism and redemption.
For several years, I sporadically posted to a blog I maintained called Apocalypse Art. I created that site to indulge my lifelong interest in end-of-the-world themes. But now I’ve retired that blog and merged it with this one.
- You can now browse several years of doomsday art in the Apocalypse Art section of this site. You’ll find posts on climate change, natural disasters, war and survivalism.
