Awesome! Certainly one of my biggest influences. I only have the Barnes and Noble version of Dante's Divine Comedy with all of Dore's illustrations, which I occasionally turn to for inspiration when I'm having trouble pulling off particularly challenging linework.


Yes, incredible illustrations !!!
Bought at DORÉ's exhibition actually in Paris.
But it's printed in the US by Dover Publications : http://store.doverpublications.com/by-subject-art-fine-art--history-of-art.html#loctop

Tell me about it, I wouldn't even know where to start when it comes to art books. Just in case you haven't come across it yet, based on the Koudounaris titles I'd most warmly recommend Philippe Ariès' incredibly insightful "The Hour of Our Death" that really is a landmark study of western attitudes towards death. Classic book! I also have a companion illustrated volume entitled "Bilder zur Geschichte des Todes" that reinforces the significance of his research even more. I'm sure there's an English edition as well.

Your pictures remind me that I've kicked it down the road to drown myself deeper in Barlowe's art. I only have a beautifully presented signed copy of his "Inferno" cycle that I hold very dear.

Shocked

I am insanely jealous of your Inferno copy! Maybe when I'm an old rich bibliophile I'll procure one haha. But yes, he's my favorite living artist, probably because of the Beksinski influence and his general aptitude for creating and being involved in things that fascinate me. Have you read his only written work, "God's Demon"? Highly recommended. He writes like he paints, and the entire work takes place in Hell.

I will keep an eye out for the Ariès work you mentioned. It's not like I have eight books stacked up waiting to read or anything. Very Happy

Here is a part of my art collection… I got more, but it's a start:



A gigantic painting on cloth of Kali, bought in Varanasi, India




Watain poster, silkscreened with the artist's own blood (made by French designer Valnoir, limited to 100)




Nocturnal Graves inside gatefold by Andrei Bourzikov




Sacred Yant Cloth from Thailand




Painting by Paolo Girardi (sorry for the reflection!)


Drawings by Daniel Corcuera










Details of the drawing









Acrylic painting of Townes Van Zandt by myself (gift to my husband hehe)




Silk Screened tour poster of Roky Erikson


I also collect gig posters, which I consider art of course. My studio is full of them:

Some of those old Chilean original flyers should be framed! Those are historical documents and deserve better.

Tim Biskup (print)



very cool. i've met Tim before. did you know he played drums in Capitol Punishment for a stint?

I did not! I met him once too - he was involved in setting up art auctions with a couple friends of mine, and was part of a clothing company started by a guy I grew up with, but I'm pretty sure now they all hate each other, for a variety of reasons. ... Come to think of it, I kind of hate all those people now too.

Devil's Receives the King's Soul

EDIT: For the King's perspective, have a look at the sister piece, "The Sleeping King". The pair illustrates Venus Star's third album.

Denis Forkas is simply incredible. Immense technical talent, and he's equally talented in his imagination, themes, and mood. I'd love to have some huge prints of his stuff, but I guess I have to settle for the poster that came with the Wrathprayer LP....
