Halloween Is Tomorrow, ART SKULLS Are For EVERYDAY!

More ART SKULLS today, these from German artist Markus Linnenbrink that are beyond amazing!  If you go to the art fairs or any shows in NYC you've probably seen his work either in thick photo paintings or sculptures of some sort, my favorites are the skulls, of course.  This dripping, candy-like paint looks good enough to eat!  Linnenbrink lives and works in Brooklyn and my hopes are to see him at more art fairs this fall.  Have a look....it's almost Halloween after all - like I need a reason! 
In his series, Skulls, Linnenbrink uses life-sized teaching skulls and paint to create artworks. The meaning behind these works? Well, that is mostly up for interpretation since his images tend to be shown without descriptions. But we might be able to turn to the colour-craziness of the rest of his works for a sign. They seem to be about experience, texture, and materials, but one thing is for sure, they look brilliant and refreshing (for any times of year.)
One of the photo-paintings...LOVE.
