MOW SKWOZ: Grotesqueries

Illustration // Thursday, August 28, 2014
MOW SKWOZ makes paintings that are brutally grotesque yet strangely pleasurable to look at at the same time. The artist manages to use pastel candy colors to represent areas of gore in the bodies, and by coupling these colors with candy-bright backgrounds there is almost a sense of sweetness to these violent representations. We're really enjoying the way the artist approaches gore.

Illustration // Tuesday, August 26, 2014
Miko Maciaszek was born in Poland and raised in Canada, and has been drawing since before he can remember.
