Invisible Beasts

Invisible Beasts

It’s a bit of a tradition for me to make a Halloween post and this year I have three pieces of new horror art to share.

A few months ago, I was invited to take part in a show titled ‘Invisible Beasts’, organised by Paul Thompson of Tales of the Hollow Earth.  Comprising an exhibition hosted by Creative Up North and an accompanying book, invited artists explored the idea of monsters in a range of mediums.

I took on a trio of Native American beasts; the Algonquian Wendigo, Navajo Skin Walker and the Inuit Tupilaq.  You can see these monsters, along with my accompanying text below the cut.

Invisible Beasts is running until 8th of November at the Creative Up North Hub, Northumberland Street, North Shields, NE30 1DS and features the work of Paul Thompson, Britt CoxonEllie Tarratt, Andrew Davy, Wip VernooijSerina ShekTerry Wiley and Oscillating Brow.
