Her portfolio is split into either amazing large-scale portraits or wonderful skull drawings and paintings.

Kit King is a self-taught Canadian artist with a penchant for the beautifully macabre. She also has seven years experience as a tattoo artist who regularly collaborates with fellow artist and husband Corey Popp.

All of her originals are available from her online store. But if you are interested in prints then be sure to visit her Society 6 store. There is even an amazing skull ring, which is a collaboration with Street Evil USA.

Skeletal Sculpture by Evan Campbell

Blind_Dead_Skeletal_Sculpture_Evan_Campbell_1 Blind_Dead_Skeletal_Sculpture_Evan_Campbell_2The above “design maquette” , another term for scale-model, shows a skeletal sculpture of a figure wearing an Asian conical hat. Evan Campbell sculpted this skeleton out of Klean clay and it is called ‘Blind Dead’.

Evan is a freelance sculptor living in California with an impressive client list, including names such as Wes Craven, John Carpenter and Quentin Tarantino to name but a few.

This is the only skull I can find in his amazing portfolio. I recommend that you visit Evan Campbell’s Deviant Art profile and have a gander at his other gruesome creations.

Jonathan Bergeron A.K.A. Johnny Crap has evolved a skull character that is instantly recognisable. Well it’s recognisable if you know his work. If Johhny Crap is new to you then I’m sure this skull style will not soon be forgotten.These slightly enigmatic looking skull characters appear all over the place from Star Wars to riding horseback wandering the sea.

Johnny Crap is a Canadian full time artist, paints with oils mainly, though he can also draw like a man possessed.

Many of Johnny Crap’s paintings can be bought from his online store. He also has prints available from Society 6. I also recommend that you follow his Instagram account as he is always updating in with WIP images. It’s a severe understatement when I say he has a prolific imagination.

The exquisite real animal skulls were painted by Violet Bond, Australian-based artist who lives in Maningrida on the coast of Arnhem Land in a remote Aboriginal community, in Northern Australia, where life can be harsh to those who experience the wrong side of the lands power. Art is Violets way to connect her life to the world.

She has always been fascinated with the ritual, spirituality, cultural expression and passion of people in association with death. I have always found the ‘western’ style of dealing with death, cold and unemotional. And yet cultures all over the world including the one that Violet lives in, have a connectedness, a shared pain and a love that one is never left to deal with alone.

For Valentines Day today it is my quest to be surrounded by death, in the form of skulls. Which I love. So I am going on a tour of some of London’s finest art galleries, including Stolen Space. Having had a quick browse on their website I was hapy to see a number of skull related pieces so I thought I’d share these!

DEATH™ on Valentine’s Day – 14 February to 29 March 2015

death cigarretes exhibition

death cigarretes“Cigarettes Rule. They deliver every time. They’ll also kill you. It’s a money back guarantee.” – BJ Cunningham

HINTERLANDGALLERY presents DEATH™ Cigarettes from the Enlightened Tobacco Company PLC: an exhibition of the twentieth century’s most honest, provocative and confrontational product campaign.

DEATH™ Cigarettes were launched in the UK in 1991 and sold originally in black soft packaging printed with a white skull and crossbones. Later products included DEATH™ Lights (marketed as Slow DEATH™), and DEATH™ Shag. Bold, no nonsense designs clearly stated the product’s ethos; “Manufacturer’s advice: Cigarettes are addictive and debilitating. If you don’t smoke don’t start.” “It’s Your funeral” and “Too bad, You’re gonna die.”

HINTERLANDGALLERY’s exhibition will be featuring the only two known surviving original ‘ADSHELL’ posters from the ‘suppressed’ 1994DEATH™ Cigarettes poster campaign, original ‘DEATH™ Trap’ vending machines, early original artwork designed for DEATH™ Cigarettes original website homepage and other DEATH™ related products.

  • DEATH™ runs from 14 February to 29 March 2015

Dead Astronaut Gangsta and other Skulled Toys

Dead astronaut gangsta  Dead astronaut gangsta_3 This skull faced astronaut, named ‘Dead Astronaut Gangsta’ is a part of the Adventure Kartel toy series by 3A. Now I say toys but I should rather say ‘collectiable’ as these creations are so damn fine. The detail that goes into thes figures is simply astounding, from the distressed clothes all the way down to the buckles.

As well as the Dead Astronaut Gangsta there are also various creepy as fuck skull astronauts from the Evenfall series.
