From Damien Hirst to Dan Akroyd’s vodka bottle, skulls are everywhere and today of course, skeletons will dance in windows and ring our bells looking for treats. Amid the vast product boneyard a few things have piqued my interest:
From Japanese designer Nobuhiku Kitamura’s extravagant, rock-influenced line, Hysteric Glamour.
Beijing-born, New York-based artist Jing Yu’s 2003 litho,”Gold Teef”
Lithograph with 24k gold leaf
10 x 8 in. (25.4 x 20.3 cm)
And my favorite… from the magical mind and gifted hands of Brooklyn artist, Adrienne Patrick, a floral wreathed marionette brings whimsy and light to the skeleton motif. I snapped this shot at BedStuy’s wonderful SOLA festival, where Adrienne displayed her fanciful, earth-friendly, one-of-a kind creations. For more on Adrienne, check out this EcoBling interview.
