Peccator Skull

Gurt Swanenberg, from The Hague, Holland, is "working on a project that depicts a modern version of the classic theme "Seven sins". I'm handpainting skulls or skeletons of animals or humans that symbolize a sin in iconographic art. The skulls are painted with modern day brands that refer to the sin." This piece is titled, "Peccator". I like the juxtaposition of skull and logos from consumer goods. This is an unusual way to use skulls in artwork, but reflects the death of our independent society when we're buried in mass consumerism. You can see more of this collection, on his website.

We want to share your skull art! Be a part of the Skull-A-Day project. Details are HERE.
