When French painter and illustrator DZO said on his website that he doesn’t like constraint when it comes to art, we assumed he meant his choice of canvas. So probably after mastering traditional art on boring pieces of paper – which you can check out on his Instagram – he moved on to more challenging surfaces: stones and skulls.
Our exQuisite Corpse creates beautifully creepy beaded human and animal skulls. Each skull has an intricate and unique patten made with tiny colorful beads. Our exQuisite Corpse works with the Huichol people of Western Mexico to create these unique works of art.
French artist Philippe Pasqua has taken human skulls and adorned them with materials including silver and gold leaf, butterflies and tattoos. Eerie and disturbing to some, strangely beautiful to others.
The great thing about skull art is that it takes someone genuinely innovative to make it interesting. Katsuyo Aoki’s intricate, ornate, porcelain skulls are examples of this.
There is a trophy room somewhere, maybe not in this reality. A glittering demon sits in an armchair, admiring his many poached souls, prepared and mounted by Roxanne Jackson. Beware when she enters your house.
