Fatal Romanticism is a form of art that goes beyond the standard conventions of romanticism while still retaining its core elements. Its main characteristics include strong emotional accentuation, creative expressiveness, dependence on symbolism and metaphors, centered around the dark and melancholic side of human life.

Fatal Romanticism is a re-emergence of romanticism in a liberating artistic form, combiningelements of surrealism, symbolism, sacredness and freedom of expression, in a post-surrealist vein. The artist is the connecting link between the material and immaterial world, using his craft toescape what is mundane in art. Romantic motifs, such as feelings, inner conflicts, freedom and its lack, ephemeral love.
