An Artistic Rendering Of The History Of Corpse Paint

Posted by on June 7, 2012

Bunny Bissoux is a Tokyo-based artist. She’s also apparently a metal fan, as a three year-old piece of hers, “Corpsepaint Creatures,” is making its way around the interwebz today. With both logos and drawings of some of the artists, the black and white piece basically looks like a large version of the inside cover of a burnout’s school textbook. Acts that pre-dated the term corpsepaint, are included, with progenitors like KISS and Alice Cooper represented. It also includes the standard-bearers, like King Diamond, Immortal, Celtic Frost and Behemoth. Even Slayer (yeah, that happened) Insane Clown Posse, The Crow and, um, pandas are represented. Unfortunately, the print, which was limited to 40, has long since sold out. Maybe her newfound fame will convince her to make a second run.
