The zombie apocalypse is upon us, or so says Zombicon 2009. This annual event of Ft. Myers, Florida, includes a cozy gallery space for all those esoteric artists we love most. This year the exhibition Dark Art 3 is curated by Curse Mackey (remember him? Our April Draw Show might spark your memory) and will take place at the Sidney & Berne Davis Art Center.
Curse hit us up for a few contributions and we gladly answered with cryptic paintings by Kevin E. Taylor, Matthew Bone, Patrick Segui, C3, and Van Arno. Aside from artists working primarily in fine art, Dark Art 3 also called on musicians, filmmakers, comic book artists, and tattooists for their deepest and darkest. By opening its doors to these notables (such as Clive Barker, Marilyn Manson, Bob Tyrrell, and Chester Bennington of Linkin Park) Dark Art 3 will be anything but stale. The show runs from October 2-17, 2009 and only time will tell which artist is the creepiest of the creepy.
