Do paintings of Lucifer, the devil or any other "under world" artistic creation serve to glorify satan or does the painting simply convey the real world fight for good and evil?
@janesix according to bible Lucifer is satan...whats ur point...i mean who is lucifer according to u?
Turn the question around and I ask: Images of Jesus in Modern Art - Should it Be Censored?
Some controversial religious art are by truly religious artists expressing their viewpoint and not merely satirizing. The front yard Christmas display of Jesus shooting Santa was a heartfelt protest against the commercialization of Christmas."

Personally it's just art and I am looking for a poster of Bill Gates as the devil in Dante's Inferno ( saw it a long time ago - can't find it now). My neighbor has a metal sculpture of a horned devil with the word "Obama" on it's forehead. It's a political statement - not a recruitment for joining in league with the devil.
I believe in truth and knowledge - censorship is contrary to the human brain. If we censor our words, how can our brain process?
The heart of people is what God sees, if a photo moves us to think about good and evil, I believe it is an act that is good.
All acts can be malicious. All of our thoughts could be malicious.
A painting with evil fighting good to me is a great thing, it showcases we have the freedom to choose just as we have the freedom to create the painting and the freedom to view the painting.
Fascinating answers - thank you all very much for sharing. I respect your opinion and how we all look at images and life a little differently - with more hope, more love and more respect for each other.
