Texas-based artist Grayson Castro has creates distinctive, boundary pushing zombie paintings. Although his usual bloodied somnambulist friends remain the star subjects on the canvas, I’m intrigued by Castro’s latest series, which takes a predominately political turn.

Think President Obama and Martin Luther King sadistically devouring ex-President Bush, or John McCain chomping on a baby’s limb. If politics aren’t your thing, there’s always zombie wedding and family portraits, or the more beautiful Audrey Hepburn included in this bold set.
