Hope you’re in the mood for a treat! This year, we’ve rounded up our favourite spooky eye candy for you to munch on. Artists have always been enamoured with the macabre, the monstrous, and the grotesque. Whether appropriating the ghastly aesthetics of the horror genre like Cindy Sherman, or employing the age old motif of the momento mori (reminder of death) like Damien Hirst, the artists below aren’t afraid of the dark.
Feast your eyes on our selection and don’t hesitate to reach out for any inquiries.
