El Día de los Muertos — the Day of the Dead are the days of death — or at least the memories of those who have died — that is to be celebrated. Its origins are distinctly Mexican: During the time of the Aztecs, a monthlong summer celebration was overseen by the goddess Mictecacihuatl, the Lady of the Dead. After the Aztecs were conquered by Spain and Catholicism became the dominant religion, the customs became intertwined with the Christian commemoration of All Saints' Day on Nov. 1.
With that being said, why not always celebrate the life and not the actual death of those we love? When I first became aware of this celebration, I was intrigued and fascinated. Such brilliant colours and life are put into such an iconic symbol of death or evil, the Skull. The Graphic Design training I received, combined with my strong fine art skills, provided me with the ability needed to create my custom skulls, and tailor it to meet the needs of the people who love or celebrate skulls.
Anything is possible when I create these skulls and using many different mediums, I can create custom skulls as per client requests or just go free with the designs of each skull. Each skull is roughly 8" tall (lifesize) and made from polyfoam plastic, making them lightweight. I started using acrylics paints but then quickly moved to using One-Shot paint as it covers better and looks extremely clean.
