If you’ve seen YAITW lately, you may have seen their gorgeous shrine, all blod and bone, at the front of the stage. This was built by Georgia artisan K from Lambs of Rot, whose art conjures darkness, death and decay, and with it the light of Lucifer. Lambs of Rot
Sigrid Sarda has been producing beautifully grotesque wax sculptures for many years now, but only a month ago she entered the Instagram world. Now I can watch her work progress as she blends memento mori with societal commentary in a way that makes even maggots a pleasing and compelling subject.
Rather than fill our Instagram feed with people’s bad selfies and what they cooked for bae (ok, I do follow this one though…), I love that Instagram has become an online gallery, where artists can curate collections of their work in a public space. Today I’d like to showcase a
If you’re like me and a huge Game of Thrones fan, then maybe you’ll understand why Spencer Byles’ sculptures are so captivating. The forest holds such beauty and mystery, and Byles’ work in the French forests of La Colle Sur Loup, Villeneuve Loubet and Mougins is like something created by the Children in Martin’s books, as a tribute to the ancient gods that flow through the veins of the trees like sap.
The best thing about writing for your own publication is that you can cover the stuff you love, and hopefully the people who come to your site will love it too…if we’ve learned anything about our readers, it’s that you love sci-fi classics like Star Wars, Alien and Blade Runner,

Choi Xoo Ang’s sculptures are way more than just art…they are visual portals that have the power make you question your place in the world! His grotesque works are created out of resin, but have a very haunting, almost human quality to them. His most recent works feature severed limbs,
The human body can be beautiful, but it takes a lot of Photoshopping to hide all the bumps and blackheads, spots and tears, wrinkles and sags. We are all grotesque in our own ways, and we don’t all have a team of makeup artists, estheticians, hairstylists and photo retouchers to
Fan Xiaoyan is a sculptor who works in metals and plastics, creating scenes of bionic strength and surreal feminine. Her series of bionic barbies are representations of futuristic women who partake in society’s most manly arts; but have their robotic limbs freed them or imprisoned them? Are their poses and
Idiots.nl is the artistic duo of Afke Golsteijn and Floris Bakker, and their name doesn’t give a clue as to their stunning creations. They work with taxidermy in a unique way, transforming animals into decoration in a way that asks us to question our place as the center of the
I’ve lamented in the past about the lack of mask-wearing in modern Halloween costumes – the mask used to be a creepy staple for every costume. But there are some true artists who revere the scary mask, and AM Creations is just such a company. AM Creations specialize in slasher
