What a great idea! I wish I had thought of it first TBH but I guess I’ll just have to get over it and go have some fun creating a cool skull at the Lauren Baker Skull Workshop.
Lauren’s skull workshop was a huge hit at Tate Modern where 200 participants decorated skulls. Plus her previous workshops at Hoxton Hotel, Shoreditch House and Museum of Pathology were all fully booked. You should probably go.
The Workshop includes:
3.5 hour workshop includes materials and refreshments
Learn about the use of skulls in art
Hear about Lauren Baker’s journey of skull art
Use a diverse range of materials to paint and embellish your skull
So I’m not sure if you have noticed but we’ve been a bit slack with bringing you a skull post every day! Apologies for this but we, Mr Four Fingers, have been extremely busy planning our first solo exhibition, WHAT LIES BENEATH, taking place on the 5th April 2013 at the Haggerston Espresso Room.
We’ll be exhibiting our latest original artwork, sculpture, limited edition prints and t-shirt designs and as always our work includes a variety of skull action! Plus we are also collaborating with In Her Glory and Elizabeth Dunn too so you best be coming to our opening night. There will be a DJ, free booze and gift bags for the first 10 people to spend over £30.
This enormous and beautifully gaudy skull sculpture was created by famous artists Niki de Saint Phalle and is situated at Missouri Botanical Gardens. This particular image is an eery photograph taken by Slopjockey on Deviant Art and was a bookmarked image from ages ago. I only mention this as since then I actually visited an exhibit of Niki de Saint Phalles work at the Gallery of Modern Art in Glasgow.
I recently went to Paris and found a few skulls which I wanted to share with you all – I do not know the names of the shops/artists/creators so if you recognise any then please share the names with us. I was hoping to find more but here are some of the ones I spotted, apologies for some of the blurry images.
This neon-styled digital skull art has been created by Chuck Anderson, AKA NO PATTERN. Nothing else to say really except holy-shit-balls-WTF, this is one seriously awesome skull and we are a appreciating.
Li Hongbo uses layers of paper to create life-size flexible art sculpures. This video shows a variety of his work, including a skull piece, and talks about his latest exhibition, aptly named Pure White Paper, at the Dominik Mersch Gallery in Sydney Australia.
It is said that Lilith was created at the same time as Adam like an equal, unlike Eve who was made from Adams rib. Lilith refused to be subservient to Adam because she was a strong and proud women. God sent angels to capture her and force her back into the garden of Eden. She refused and vowed her revenge. It is said that you can hear Lilith cries at night, in the wind and in the cries of the animals in the dark. Lilith was also thought to mean ‘Owl’.”
