I was quite surprised that there is no proper dA club dedicated to the magnificent Decadent movement. So I did not hesitate even a second to create one. Our club is now one week old. What is one week? Not that much, especially here, on dA. Nevertheless we managed to form quite a club, with warm atmosphere and submissions of a high standard.

What is the theme of the club? This is the most frequent question.  Artifice over nature, art somewhat influenced by the tradition of the Gothic novel and by the poetry and fiction of Edgar Allan Poe, part dark/part sarcastic/part pessimistic, the borders are quite broad. If you are interested in joining all you need to do is to note us.

So here, for your consideration are our first submissions, deviant and decadent.

They who dream by day are cognizant of many things which escape those who dream only by night. - Edgar Allan Poe
