Dead Famous is a series of skull paintings by British-born pop-artist George Ioannou. George’s painting skills first came to light when he launched a collection of paintings which depicted iconic scenes from a number of cult movies.
He now sells originals for around £30000 and his customer base includes the likes of Roman Abramovich, Adele and Theo Paphitis.
This particular series of skull paintings, Dead Famous, depicts a number of skulls from celebrities dead or alive. You should be able to guess each one pretty easily
We have featured some skulls from Jeral Tidwell before but having a look at his website again recently I figured it was time to share more of his skulls as he just has so many of them! Jeral has a curious cartoon tattoo flavoured style that often features skulls and various other details that you may miss at a glance. I also noticed that he often paints on various other substrates like car radiators, bodies and gasoline tanks. I admire this diversity in his approach to executing his art.

These beautiful acrylic skull paintings have been sent into us by Tony Rose, the artist behind these beautiful pieces. Unfortunately Tony doesn’t have a website yet but you can check out more of his work here in his Facebook album.
These beautifully painted skulls were sent to us by Gerrard King from Axis Creative Industries. The skulls are all hand painted, except the last one which has been created using photoshop. You can order these painted skulls by contacting them on their website. The skulls are all unique and not mass produced so yours will be completely unique.
These skull paintings and screen prints from Tom French are incredible! Allusions is a screen print which was inspired by other skulltastic work in Tom’s Shrouded Perceptions. The skulls are hauntingly good with portraits of women expertly painted inside to create an illusion.
The dripping skulls could be mascots for our society. They are that fucking cool. Cracking job on the skull action Tom! We, as the Skull Appreciation Society, salute you.
