Gary Baseman on Halloween

I had the pleasure to attend this past weekend Gary Baseman’s Art Show in Los Angeles to start mentally preparing for Halloween this year. I have to say, the show was spooky and fun. I love the collection of vintage photographs that the artist has collected over the decades to compile such interesting and spooky experience, some of the photographs are nearly a century old. Most of the images are just normal people getting ready to trick or treating around the american suburbia in the 50′ and 60′, but the brushes added by the artist makes it even more freaky. I personally love Halloween, this pagan festivity really bring us back to spooky times and believes, if you know the actual history of Halloween. Enjoy!

This is a great piece the artist had at the Show. Easily made by covering dolls with a piece of white fabric with holes for the eyes and mouths. It is a simple cheap decor DIY you can try this Halloween.
