Grayson Castro

Grayson Castro is our kind of artist.  He takes iconic images of, well, icons… and zombifies them.  As zombies hit a sort of renaissance in today’s pop culture (along with, unfortunately, vampires), Castro saw fit to take it into the high-brow world of art. Each painting is of a famous figure–Audrey Heburn, Dolly Parton, McCain and Obama (each with a tasty piece of baby), and even Lindsay Lohan, who looks alarmingly normal even as a zombie mess).  Blood splatter, beady dead eyes, and menacing stares adorn our favorite public figures.  They’ve vibrant and pretty–sort of the antithesis of zombiness–but perhaps that’s what makes them amusing and compelling.  Also, there’s a pretty hot one of zombie stripper kneeling in a pile of cash.
