Devil paintings involve painting demonic figures in a form of artistic expression. The colour palette for such art is kept along the dark shades which add on more depth. This kind of art works around the motifs of temptation and sin. They might also use them as portraying moral messages and the forever struggle between the good and the evil. This kind of art also changes its interpretation according to the time period. The medieval time period depicted devil as sinful souls in order to put light on moral lessons. They used this art to illustrate the concept of punishment after commuting a sin.
