'Celebrabis Vitae' - upcoming skull-based art exhibition from The Skull Appreciation Society [Opening in LONDON on October 31st]

Skull fan? Yeaaaaah of course you are. Well, our friends over at the Skull Appreciation Society are putting together a group show which (yep, you guessed it) is totally packed full of grey matter protectors! We urge all you London folk to bookmark this event which opens on Halloween. If these teaser images are anything to go by, then its likely to be quite the spectacle! Tickets to the opening night are just £10 but hurry, they're running out fast... a bit like your life, ha!
The Skull Appreciation Society (SAS), is a Hackney-based website run by the creative duo Mr Four Fingers. It functions as a portal for skull artists from around the world to showcase and share their skull creations, from sculpture to original artwork, with an international audience. The society was initially created to show an appreciation of this iconic symbol which has been used for thousands of years in art, religion and design to represent death and our own mortality. Instead of these often macabre-like themes surrounding skulls, the Skull Appreciation Society view the skull as a celebration of life.
With a focus on celebration, and drawing inspiration from cultural events such as Mexico’s Día de los Muertos (Day of Dead) festival, the Skull Appreciation Society invite you to pay tribute to and celebrate the lives of past friends and family members at Celebrabis Vitae.
Craig McCartney, co-founder of the Skull Appreciation Society comments: “Bringing friends and family together to pay tribute to the lives of their past loved ones is a beautiful sentiment and one we feel should be celebrated more. We’ve brought together an eclectic mix of artists from around the world to showcase this iconic symbol as we pay tribute to those who have been taken us from us too soon.
So be sure to book your tickets to the opening night HERE which (rather fittingly) falls on 31st October, with the show then running until November 6th. This one is surely not to be missed!

New custom Deathshead Daimyo by Jon-Paul Kaiser


Jon-Paul Kaiser has once again brought the war to our door with this new Deathshead custom samurai! Drop him a line if you need a bit of Kaiser in your life and on your toy shelf. (caution, his work will make the rest of your collection look trash!)

JPK writes: "It's a Deathshead, the original figure is by David Flores and is for an avid collector of this platform. After talking to the customer we settled on a samurai theme with plenty of red included. This custom took me several months to complete as I'd keep seeing other customs he was getting with the same platform which made me keep returning to the drawing board to make sure this guy really stood out in a group of Deathsheads... Hopefully that has worked."
