The Death Head
Texas based and self-taught underground artist, The Death Head grew up in Nuevo Laredo Tam. Mexico and found inspiration for his artwork in the Day of the Dead traditions, also embracing the punk rock movement’s attitude. He expresses these interests in his art, by mythologizing his environment while interpreting the brutal, primal, and animalistic side of the human form. He refers to his style as Pop Surealism::
As an Artist I’m trying to recreate images that have no logic. These images are full of mystery and sometimes impossible to understand. Their actions are playful and satirical. They ridicule and confuse the viewer. They are a parody of human rules and explain to the viewer that nothing should be taking seriously.
They explain, that we are no longer in the physical world. My subjects and protagonists are experiencing a grotesque metamorphosis and are shape shifting. Their faces are transforming into animal skulls and are often showing animal characteristics as well. This begins live in constant duality, were they live and die, they are human and animal, nature and void, light and matter.
