Lente Scura is a digital artist who combines photo-manipulation and digital painting techniques to create emotive digital paintings of subjects struggling within emotional states and dream-like environments. Lente Scura takes the viewer on an emotional journey through visually striking digital compositions filled with dramatic anguish and beauty, giving insight to the complexity of emotions of the subjects of each painting.

To convey the emotional message of each work, the artist focuses on how the human form through light and color and atmospheric ambiguity emanates energy and motion, creating at times a vortex of haunting emotional landscapes, where the artist portrays the ranges of Humanity.

Lente Scura’s art has its roots in classical painting of Italy, American painting of the mid 1800s, and in the German Expressionism and Surrealism movements of the early to mid-1900s. Lente Scura works within these styles, allowing the artist to portray at times ethereal beauty and at times immense horror and anguish. This mixture of styles leans to the dream quality of Lente Scura’s art, allowing the artist to focus not on reality in terms of environment, time, or location, but in the realm of dreams and all its hopes and fears and its endless struggle of voice and individuality.

Lente Scura holds undergraduate degrees in literature and in painting and drawing and a Masters of Fine Art in Digital Art and Media, allowing the artist to combine the fields of literature and traditional painting with the digital world, creating a surreal dream world that has become the embodiment of the spirit and soul of the artist.

Listening to....


"Though much is taken, much abides; and though
We are not now that strength which in old days
Moved earth and heaven, that which we are, we are---
One equal temper of heroic hearts,
Made weak by time and fate, but strong in will
To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield."

-Alfred, Lord Tennyson

Hello. I just found your work, and really like it. I wish to ask if I could use one of your photos for a Wattpad book cover? If not, I understand. I am not publishing it or anything, it is just for my personal use, really. Thank you very much for your consideration, and I am adding you to my Watch list as well.

Thanks for the fave.  You're awesome, as always!  ^_^  I'm glad you liked it.  "Duality" had a lot of special meaning for me, and it was a pleasure to write.
