I mentioned Chris Zombieking in an earlier post about finger friend zombies and have been meaning to post a bit more about him for some time.
I found Chris’ work through his now internet-famous zombie finger chomping down on another finger.
And although I absolutely love this image, it isn’t the only thing Chris does. As he says in his bio on his site:
“Across the millennia, I have designed a few t-shirts, created thousands of zombies and watched an awful lot of paint dry.
In 2015 my curiosity for curiosities saw me launch into the nefarious business world of corpse relocation – specialising in foetal specimens.
I currently offer a fair range of cryptozoological specimens – some of these species are now extinct, others mythological, and a few are completely fictitious!
Taking a distanced view of my art over the years, I delight in visualising death. Not in a morbid way – I see a true vibrancy and vitality within ‘dead things’. In this vein, the cyclic nature of rebirth is a reoccurring theme in my work; the foetus being a regular artefact in this depiction.
I enjoy building narrative around my artwork too… whether it be finding layers of depth within portraiture, or dabbling with transmedia storytelling to construct worlds in which multiple pieces of art can coexist.”
