Ok so it doesn't at all feel like it was just yesterday but goddamn, that was a long time ago.
In celebration of his 80th birthday, Florida's CityArts Factory recently put together a tribute art show to the kind hearted monster, calling together 80 different artists from around the globe, each tasked with creating their own unique vision of Frankenstein. Their canvas? A life size Karloff/Frankenstein bust, which they were free to paint and tweak in any way they saw fit. The results? Some of the coolest and most unique pieces of Frankenstein art ever created.
Check out some of my favorite pieces from the exhibit, which ran from October 20th through November 11th!
As you can see, many of these have sold while others are still up for grabs, with all proceeds from all sales going directly to St Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Frankie wouldn't have it any other way. You can see more of the amazing busts by heading over to The It's Alive Project.
