Description of Circo De Los Muertos
“Circo De Los Muertos” – Carousel of Death is my new Day Of The Dead Original Painting. I was inspired by a local carnival and it’s merry go round. The Carousel can be a really weird and cool ride! Sometimes you ride on frogs, bees, turtles, and other things that just don’t make any sense. The carnival I went to had a number of colored horses in their ride and it inspired me to paint this artwork with a mixed media of techniques.
I just read about “Dead Man’s Carnival” in Milwaukee which is also awesome. The mixture of fun and morbid thoughts makes Los Muertos Art so interesting to me as an artist. The sky is the limit to what you can create if you can just free your thoughts and become one with your subconcious mind.
This folk art painting is 24 x 36″ with texture and was hand painted on gallery wrapped canvas.
