Brazilian Skulls

Today's tremendous trio of skulls comes to us from Brazilian artist Marcos L. Britto. They represent a progression of his styles over a five year period.

Petroleum - 2003


13 - 2005


Untitled - 2008


I'm not much of a fine art person, but I know what I like when I see it. Of course I like all of these for their skulls, but the way they appear tell me different things in each painting. The colorful schemes give them a lot of texture and life. Thanks for submitting them, Marcos, and for speaking to us in the language of art.
