About the Piece:

Where do nightmares come from? Are they figments of our imagination, or physical beings that exist in our world? What if all of our dreams begin as pleasant ones, without a single bad dream to haunt our sleep. However as we sleep, there are creatures that come out at night and feed upon the positive energy and happy emotions in our dreams. As these creatures, these Nightmares, devour those feelings, they sustain themselves and survive, but our peaceful dreams are drained and corrupted, leaving behind only the twisted remains, the frightening visions that terrorize our sleep.

The original is in the private collection of Paul Bielaczyc.

About the Artist:

Paul and his brother Michael opened Aradani Studios in 2002, selling both their artwork and costuming as they travelled all across the US. Paul’s medium of choice is charcoal, a passion he discovered in college. He loves the fluidity of it, the ease of moving it across the page with a simple gesture, and on the flipside, the challenge of it, such a simple gesture can also erase hours of painstaking detail. Paul’s work has won numerous awards around the country, including the prestigious Chesley Award in 2006, for Best Monochrome Unpublished for his piece Nightmare. He currently resides in Nashville, TN, where he, his brother, and sister continue to expand and build their elf ear empire. You can see his artwork at
