Surreal Paintings Made With Human Blood



If you've ever thought to yourself "Man, I would love to try my hand at painting, but paint is way too expensive" then guess what-your body is full of a fluid that works just as well but will cost you nothing!

I'm talking about blood, and although it may seem strange to paint with the stuff, it is definitely one of the less disgusting bodily fluids artists have decided to use in their works. Artist Vinicius Quesada knows the value of a pint of vital fluid, and you can see more of his sanguis works at the link below.

These are Prints not paintings. As in the distinction between a screenprint or a lithograph or a etching. Those are all prints. While the definition for painting is very broad, there's still a difference between a painting and a collaged print.

As an amateur painter, I can say there there is something profoundly personal about the works that I create. This appeals to me because it's taking that sense of connection between the painting and its creator one step further by actually putting part of one's physical self into the work.

That said, while I don't "get" all of the art showcased, I did enjoy the juxtaposition of using blood for man-made industrial objects.

Also, while I certainly can't speak for this artist's motivations, I can say that based on what I've seen, most artists could care less about what is considered daring and groundbreaking through the eyes of the world.

I'm not a horror fan, but I know there's a gore film out there where an artists runs out of red paint. so he starts killing people to use their blood for red. I wonder if this is leading to that??

This sort of thing I really don't get. I can sort of see the point of using blood in the bomb & the oil rig pics - but in most of the others it just seems to me like he's using blood as a gimmick. And it seems like a pretty silly gimmick rather than a daring & groundbreaking gimmick which is what I assume it's meant to be.
