About Macabre

Art is such a broad thing.  Think of all the art forms we don’t know about.  Think of the hundreds of millions of artists we don’t know about.  I’m most interested in computer-generated art, street art, pop art, canvas work, and non-traditional work in the macabre category.  Macabre spotlights grim, gore and death.  Artists use familiar and original images to bring pop culture icons, like zombies and Frankenstein, to demonstrate their work.

Here’s Walt Disney’s take on macabre, a short animation called La Danza Macabra (The Dancing Skeleton).

Spirits and diablos can be found in cave paintings, in the Bible, and even in the shadows.  It’s something every person, every culture, and every religion is familiar with.  Horror can be mixed with love, with humor, and with pop culture.  That’s why it’s becoming so popular.  Writers, illustrators, and film makers are taking old stories and modernizing them us.

It’s a big world out there, and I plan to explore.  Whatever I find will give me (and you) some insight.

    Hiya! Quick question that’s entirely off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My weblog looks weird when viewing from my iphone4. I’m trying to find a template or plugin that might be able to resolve this issue.
    If you have any suggestions, please share. Appreciate
    it!
