An Artist’s Project Brings Out The Dark Themes Of Harry Potter

Harry Potter as a horror series.

Seattle artist Dylan Pierpont exposes the world of Harry Potter for its grim underlying themes by illustrating re-imagined movie posters.

The infamous series has been made into seven films, all of which present visuals that cater to a PG audience. But the series is not void of dark, grim moments.

“A while back I was thinking about a few of the stories and characters that had a big influence on me growing up,” Pierpont commented on his website. “And while Harry Potter was by far and away the most age appropriate of the group, I couldn’t help but remember how dark some of the themes became over the course of the series.”

Pierpont’s project, #ScaryPotter, reveals the ghastly themes of each book by connecting text from the story to the illustrations:

Scary Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone

“I was ripped from my body, I was less than spirit, less than the meanest ghost . . . but still, I was alive.”

“The mind is not a book, to be opened at will and examined at leisure. Thoughts are not etched on the inside of skulls, to be perused by any invader. The mind is a complex and many-layered thing…”

 

Scary Potter and the Half Blood Prince
