A series if of simple skull paintings by Irish artist John O Connell. View more of his work on his Mondo John Deviant Art profile
We really do try and minimise the level of self-promotion on this blog dedicated to skulls but we do like to draw them and then we have no choice but to share them with you. This Batman skull painting, created of course by Mr Four Fingers, was created using acrylic paints. It once resided in The Abbey Pub in Kentish Town.
Skeletubes is an ongoing series of hand-painted vintage vacuum tubes by Noah Scalin, founder and creator of Skull-A-Day and successful mixed media artist based in the US of A.
Most skull-obsessive fanatics would’ve come across Noah’s work at some point in their lives and we also have some of his artwork, the Natural Selection Series, in our shop, which will soon be displayed at the Curious Duke Gallery in London.
Like most people with smart phones nowadays I am constantly trawling social media channels but my favourite is definitely Instagram because I find gems like this beautiful skull painting by the talented Kathleen Sanders. You can follow her Instagram here and if you really want to then follow us, The Skull Society, on instagram.
I can’t seem to find a website to link to but you can also check out more of her work on Society 6.

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.

HANNAH ADAMASZEK is hot property in the art scene here in London and she is a definite rising star (keep your eyes and ears peeled!). We met Hannah through the Curious Duke Gallery and have loved her work from the start – her definitive style is easy on the eye and has that mass appeal everyone wants a piece of. Hannah stepped out of her comfort zone here by creating a skull piece specifically for the show and we loved her execution and interpretation of the brief, and the way she tied in her style through the consistency of colours.
Her artwork is now available to buy in our shop so if you are fan then I would suggest grabbing this while you can because her work is only going to increase in value!

Ryohei Hase is a one of our favourite skull artists, well judging by the amount of times we have blogged about his work, here and here. This ominous skull painting reminds me of something you would see in a horror movie about love. The half man half skull beast is holding what appears to be the women he loves, perhaps just after he has killed her. Possibly a crime powered by passion?
INSA is a fine artist and designer who creates real-life gifs! He has labeled them as Gif-iti and each mural is painted and then photographed in sequence to create the animation (of up tom 8 layers) which you can see here. I found this amazing work on This Is Coloassal, and you can visit the post which has a few more executions of the same idea. They are all brilliant!
This beautiful skull-themed print is by a french artist called Mr Walter from the Art&Toys website. I love black and white imagery and this piece also reminds me of an African-styled painting hanging in a typical African pub, only this time, it includes some sexy skulls.
The print is limited to 50, with a signed certificate of authenticity, is printed on 300g of Innova fine art paper and is 40x60cm. It can be yours for just €60. DO IT.
Can you believe that this is an oil painting?! The piece, entitled Gravity, was a commissioned piece of artwork for the Deviant artist Patrick Kramer. The reason I’m posting this is because of the sweet skull wallpaper he has created in the painting.
Looking at this again and I can’t believe this is a painting…
Stephan Alexandr is an American designer and artist. He sources these animal skulls locally and imports these too, if not available in the US, paints and decorates them and in doing so transforms them into mountable pieces of striking art. The style reminds me of a simplified version of a recent artist I saw, when I attended the Blow My Mind’ exhibition by Lauren Baker.
I really like the shape of the Buffalo skull, and would love to see this in person as I think the size of it would surprise me, plus it’s proportionately very symmetrical which I love
Stephan has got a big selection of work to offer – visit his shop but do check out the rest of his site as it gives you plenty of info about him, his history and his work.
This vintage-like skull illustration, Pilot, is by the Black Market Art Company and is a Giclee printed Canvas. Enough Said.
I’m absolutely blown away by these oil paintings by Charlie Immer and these few skulls are only a glimpse of what this man has to show. At a glance his work seems bright and friendly but soon you realise there is a whole lot of dark shit going on. Like us he definitely has a massive love for skulls.
