These large-scale murals by Alexis Diaz are something to behold. Covering large areas with with paint is not for this fella, oh no. Alexis would rather hatch the shit out of it. As you can see by the detail shots this means a whole lot of lines.

Nosego

Nosego_1 Nosego_2  Nosego_4 Nosego_5Skulls may not play a central role in the crazy world of Nosego but there are a few. That at least means we can introduce  you to the facking bonkers world of this fella.

Nosego explains that his compositions are influenced by childhood memories. But not exactly in the way you may think. His particular influence came from the way his toys looked jumbled together in his toy box. Often imagining they were one creature.

Nosego says that he would love if people described him as bodacious. We tend to agree with that.

Skull Painting by Pascal Vicollet

Pascal_vicollet

Out the plethora of paintings styles that exist I’m definitely drawn to the ‘painterly style’ above all. A lovely example of that style is this skull painting by the fantastic Pascal Vicollet.

Pascal is known for his thick brush strokes, dripping lines and dynamic angles. All of which comes together beautifully in his portrait paintings.

Pascale Vicollet is French self-taught painter with a background in graphic design.

Skeleton Cardboard

On one drunken night in East London we spied a mischievous little skull through blurry eyes. The skull I’m referring to was a vinyl sticker created by Skeleton Cardboard. We were fortunate enough to find out the artists name through posting about it on Insta. It’s the yellow skull in case you were wondering.

Skeleton Cardboard is the artist name of Scot Bared Kolanerd. Scot is known for leaving these little skull buggers on the streets on London. These skeletons are generally drawn on discarded bits of cardboard or painted on walls.
Skeleton Cardboard has a great stream on Insta and if you fancy buying some originals then drop by Well Hung. Don’t worry, it’s SFW.

We recently posted about some skull stickers from the devilish mind of Defame. Since then we decided to purchase some of those stickers for ourselves and nab an original too.

The skull stickers are great and the original drawing is damn fine. The details of the actual are great and the slight embossed logo is a great touch.

Check out more of Defame’s work on his website and definitely follow him on Insta.

Failed Lobotomy

It’s quite horrifying to think that there was once a time that a sharp metal rod and hammer were used in a neurosurgical procedure. I’m referring to a lobotomy. This may sound more than a little lame but I found this out watching the film ‘Sucker Punch’ . I thought it was electro therapy like in movie The One Who Flew Over the Cuckoos Nest. Read more on Wicki about this terrible procedure.

‘Failed Lobotomy’ is a brass metal sculpture, that depicts a macabre twist on the procedure. This gruesome lobotomy depics the ‘orbitoclast’ (modified ice pick) bursting through the back of the skull. In reality physician would hammer the pick through the patients eye socket. The pick would then be moved from side to side. This action was to separate the frontal lobes from the thalamus. Yeah it’s fucking grim.

This macabre skull sculpture is for sale on Museum Oddities for $699. The skull is life size and very heavy.

Yukon Seasons – Carved Animal Skull and antlers

‘Yukon Seasons’ is another amazing carved animal skull and antler piece from the hands of the immensely talented Shane Wilson. We have featured his carvings and sculptures before with Gaia Moose Skull and Dall Sheep Duality. As usual we are blown away with the immense detail and skill.

This may be an old piece dating back to 2003 but if you have not seen it before then it’s new right? This particular carved animal skull belonged to a  moose skull and is carved with various geometric motifs and animals of the Yukon, the home of Shane Wilson.
