Horror is a popular genre because it helps us come to terms with the darker side of human nature. But the films represented in this art show were not always appreciated by the general public; most were made on a shoestring budget and some were even completely shunned by the mass media. However, thanks to their uniqueness and creativity, these B-Movies have developed a strong following in the outsider subculture.

The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Demons, Evil Dead, Frankenhooker, Street Trash, Deranged, Basket Case, Mother’s Day, Astrozombies, Hobo With A Shotgun, Dead Alive, Squirm, The Stuff, Maniac, Dr. Butcher… These are just some of the movies in the B/Underground Genre that inspire us to create our most horrific artworks.

Join MF Gallery and a slew of horror enthusiasts, as we pay tribute to our favorite movies through drawings, paintings, sculptures, and other works of art.

At the Opening Party on Saturday May 14th from 7 to 10pm, MF Gallery will be projecting a selection of our favorite Horror Movies of all time, accompanied by a Heavy Metal soundtrack. Refreshments will be served. Admission is Free and open to all ages.

Saints of Ruin : Glampyre

I mentioned a week or so ago that I was working on artwork for a New Orleans band; the band is Saints of Ruin; the artwork is for their forthcoming album Glampyre. Now I’m the first to admit that I’m no portrait artist, but when a kick-ass rockin’ band from NOLA says “Paint us as vampires”… you don’t say no!
