As an admirer of all things horrifying, you can imagine my excitement when I stumbled upon one of the most sickening collections of masks I have seen to date in the form of Chris Marchwinski’s Instagram account, @theparallelca. This LA-based FX artist and sculptor creates the most lifelike monsters and

Religion is a big fucking deal in the US. Everyone from the President to your neighbor has their beliefs and wants to tell you about them…or shove them down your damned throat. And one religion looms large over the politics and culture of the country – Christianity. It has its

Immortalizing a beautiful animal that’s died of natural (non-human-related) causes is a moving and breathtaking art form. But for every artistic piece of taxidermy there are hundreds of terrible pieces, and I’ve

The phrase we often use to describe the human tendency to conceal our faults and secrets is “skeletons in the closet,” but wouldn’t it be more accurate if those skeletons were in the basement? The dank, dark recesses of the cellars and basements of houses all over the world are

The sculpture of Jim Skull taps into a fascination we all have with human death, and with what lies beneath our surface. For some people, the skull signifies fear, revulsion, warning. For others, it is a powerful talisman, an object to be revered. Upon finding a human skull at age
