Welcome to Hell! 🔥
This week, we chose to shiver with fear. With this special playlist for Halloween, Art Explora Academy offers you a ride in hell! Discover how artists have sought to represent death and let Bosch’s demons give a glimpse into the afterlife…

More than 500 years have passed since the death of Early Netherlandish artist Hieronymus Bosch, and his small oeuvre of some 30 known paintings and drawings still manages to completely beguile us. Given the mind-blowing detail with which he animated horrifying hellscapes and outlandish creatures, we have to wonder, who exactly was the man behind these fantastical images?
