Vessel: Film funding project. Here are some beautiful illustrations of skulls made by talented artist James Hoper.
”To help raise funds for my new film project as part of Mononym films I have produced limited edition screen prints, artwork and postcards. All proceeds from sales will go towards funding the short film Vessel.”
About the artist:
”My work explores a variety of subjects from the heightened realities depicted in Baroque art and modern media to the restraint and release of energy found within complex structures such as the human body. I work in various mediums including painting, drawing, sculpture and film.
I have exhibited widely throughout the world including both group and solo shows in London, New York, Los Angeles, Milan and Barcelona.
Disturbing, macabre and moving: the images in this book examine our endu- ring desire to make peace with death. Chosen from the spectacular collection of a death-obsessed print dealer from Chicago, Richard Harris, they include art from an array of time periods, places and traditions.
Works by Linda Connor, Robert Mapplethorpe, Andy Warhol, Otto Dix and Francisco Goya are shown alongside Renaissance vanitas paintings, Japanese Ukiyo-e woodcuts, photographs of Mexico’s Day of the Dead and eerie snapshots from the 1900s of anonymous sitters posing with skulls and skeletons.
The book is divided into five sections (Contemplating Death, The Dance of Death, Violent Death, Eros & Thanatos, and Commemoration), each accompanied by a short introductory text. In these pages we are presented with some of the many faces of death: violent and cruel, benign and playful; death the friend and death the enemy. The epitome of terrible beauty, this book is a reminder of the end awaiting us all.

About the Artist:
”My name is Antoni Tudisco, I was born and raised in Germany by my Filipina mother and my Italian father. I’m a fan of extraordinary things ever since I was a child. I had my own world as a kid. I started to sketch during lessons when i was attending the elementary school I didnt really listen to the teacher i just draw and skribble.
I guess that characteristic of mine developed into being creative and original today. The first time I heared about the *ADOBE PALETTE* , I left no stone unturned and learned every commands all by myself. Since then, *ADOBE* and me were like bestfriends. We were inseprable.
Then I tried taking another step higher and tried doing 3D designs and videos. It was hard at first because i had to understand and do everything all alone but because of hard work and enthusiasm, it turned out to be a success until i developed my own website where I presented my works after that, i got the attention of other artists and agencies. After recieving my diploma at the age of 18, I got loads of projects and requests from some major clients such as MTV PHILIPPINES, COCA-COLA, REEBOK WOMAN, NESTLE and VANS”

About the Designer Studio:
”We are a young South African duo inspired by the grit and grime of the London streets. An inspiration that has led us down a path of art, skulls and dark undertones. We are obsessed with what lies beneath, the tainted side – the unseen but only ever imagined. We are a collaboration of two restless and exploratory minds and Mr Four Fingers is our representative. Together we share art in the hope to infiltrate every home in the world.” mrfourfingers.com
”The idea of this series was inspired by Necrophobia, or someone’s fear of death as well as anything that is associated with it (coffins, skulls, tombstones). Although it is a part of life and is something all us will end up with, there’s this huge fear and denial of acceptance.The project revolved around this idea, creating illustrations designed heavily with florals and vibrant colors to reflect a slightly brighter mood to the drawings or the whole composition. All illustrations were hand-drawn and painted a bit with watercolor before a few editing in Photoshop.” Daryl Feril
