New Gothic Art / Therion
New Gothic Art is a contemporary art movement that emphasizes darkness and horror.
The Neo Gothic Art Manifesto was written by gothic artist Charles Moffat in 2001,who also coined the term “Neo Gothic” in an effort to differentiate it from gothic architecture. The manifesto was later updated in 2003, but both versions emphasize rebellion against normality.
