Eroticism and death meet in an exciting collaboration between artists Alex Garnett and Cassandra Yap creating a beautifully handcrafted fine bone china skull adorned with screen printed, kinky ladies from the vintage erotica era.
The Dead Sexy skull is a symbol of deadly desire and human frailty. A whirlwind of eroticism revealing carnal obsessions and dark fantasies that constantly occupy our minds and perhaps remain ingrained forever tantalizing us, even in death.
Cassandra Yap is an artist and art director based in London. Her work often explores the juxtaposition between dark and beautiful subjects to create the surreal. Fuelled by her love of pin ups, the female form and an unhealthy obsession with vintage erotica, her photomontage halftone style illustrations are dark, bold and humorous with a kinky edge.
Her work has been featured in a number of exhibitions including: Print Club Blisters Blackout ’10 & Blisters The Directors Cut '12, 3939 Shop pop up gallery at the Shop At Bluebird, LHR's ‘A is for…?’ at the Hanbury Arms, The London Illustration Fair & Dalston Superstore.
