About the artwork
Death (the skull)is like an octopus with his tentacles. Death can catch you anytime anywhere. It can ferry you to the afterworld hence the skull wearing a captain hat. – See more at: http://www.artpie.co.uk/shop/product/the-death/#sthash.EeNTKoeX.dpuf
About the artist by the artist – Otto D’ambra
I was born in Milan December 3rd 1978, I graduate in 2003 at the academy of fine arts “Accademia di Brera” specializing in set design.I started collaborating in 1998 as set designer in various interior design practices. I never let go of my love for art and keep developing my research of a personal aesthetics in pictorial and graphic drawing. Fascinated by the concept of body art in 2005 i undertook, parallel to my work as set designer, a career as tattoo artist.
My work is the result of extensive research and experimentation to best render my most personal point of view.
I’ve always been influenced by surrealism as a lens through which to look at the world, the great possibilities it opens up. My drawings express a vision that is both ironic and critic. I create images that are quite direct and of impact, made of immediate though simple elements.
