These fragmented skull paintings are collectively called ‘Doom Loop’ followed by piece number. For instance the first image below is ‘Doom Loop 19′ and were originally created with Cel-Vinyl Acrylic (not sure how it differs from standard Acrylic?) on paper by artist Tim Biskup. I initially thought these were digital illustrations with scanned textures so I was pleasantly surprised to find they are paintings/reproductions of paintings.

Pretty intense skull murals and art by Hungarian street artist Fat Heat. He has a superb array of images in his portfolio and many crazy skulls strewn about. His ‘About’ section is quite a refreshing read, no bullshit and pomp, just passion. Fat Heat’s art adorns walls, canvases and he even dabbles in the digital realm. He also has a damn fine website.
You can check out these skull murals and other work over at his Flickr account or his website.
Awhile ago Meggs had an exhibit in London that I went to see but I arrived as they were packing up. The website got the closing times wrong. I had a brief chat with the guys packing up the artwork and asked them how the show was. Later I found an interview online with Meggs and realised that the guy I spoke to was the man himself or at least I’m pretty sure it was. Doh!
Simple and colourful watercolour and digital skull created by Vanessa Rivera. This is the only skull I can find that she has created but be sure to check out her other illustrations on Behance as they are pretty damn good.
These creepy skulls come from the warped mind of surreal pop artist Robert Craig. He reminds me of Ron English in terms on content and executions, that being cartoon-esque and often hyper real paintings that have artificially and popping colours. Where the they differ, for me, is the fact that Robert Craig has a more chaotic and surreal landscape filled with oddities. He he also seems a little bonkers.
Rot is a stop-motion video of a decaying body depicted through the forming of a painted skull, and bones, as the body withers away. Skull face-paint ideas have been very popular on our blog before and during Halloween so thought we would end it off on this amazing video. It’s superbly made.
Not only is Scott Campbell is pretty decent tattoo artists but he also has some interesting alternative outlets for his creative nature. Skulls inside eggs has to be one of the most interesting places I have seen someone put them (pen?). Maybe he should buy a skull and then paint a skull inside that skull. Skullception.
The blurb on Kollectible Kulture states these are “custom drawing of Hugh Rose”. So not sure if these are self portraits of Hugh Rose or simply images he has drawn. Whatever they are they are pretty cool.
Since I bookmarked this it seems that Kollectible Kulture are no longer using their domain name and now there is generic web hosting page.
