Black Velvet Paintings by Bruce White
In keeping with the Halloween theme this week, here are some great horror paintings by Bruce White, a tattoo artist and painter from North Carolina, US.
Check out his website, Velvet Geek, for his full portfolio – well worth a look.
“Bruce has been tattooing for over 13 years and has recently turned his artistic eye towards an often under appreciated medium: black velvet. Bruce feels that working with velvet gives his paintings a degree of visual contrast that cannot be replicated by painting on any other surface. He also believes that Elvis and Jesus are not the only icons of the world worthy of being immortalized on a velvety canvas. He has chosen this medium to channel his admiration for many of pop culture’s most iconic characters.”Art Illustration Posted on October 27, 2011
