Remember our article on melting ceramic? The subject determined us to search for more strange art collections and what we found was truly breathtaking. We discovered these amazing and original blood paintings, the work of an original and nonconformist Australian tattoo artist.
Rev Mayers is the name of the Australian artist who chose to be original and developed a passion for somewhat creepy and strange works of art, the blood paintings. He developed a real passion for creating crimson artwork using nothing but (guess what?) blood.
The Australian artist based in Sydney uses airbrushing, standard paint brushing, scraping, smudging and layering to create his realistic blood paintings – masterpieces. In time, he has progressed from tattooing and body art to this new found passion, none other than blood paintings.
The story of Rev Mayers and his blood paintings can be read in a book called “Dr Rev – A man with blood on his hands”, which can be found on his website where you can also ask for a custom made blood painting. Rev Mayers uses only human blood, his own blood, to be more accurate.
He has a great number of fans from all around the world. His art was already exhibited in various shows and he is worldwide famous for the blood paintings he creates, though he isn’t the only artist to have such odd work material.
What would like to see painted in blood? No matter what you choose, don’t forget to ask Rev Mayers to do it because he is one of the finest „blood” artists there are. Blood isn’t just the principal and vital material of life or just a creepy liquid we all hate to have spilled, but can become the main work material for an entire art collections.
Would you dare have your own portrait done with your own blood?
