The abstract skull art of Grady Gordon is the perfect way to decorate for Halloween without succumbing to the typical cliches of the holiday. Creepy and ghoulish, the monotype prints can nevertheless be hung around the house or office during other parts of the year. That is, if people are into such constant displays of the macabre. Clearly, they would have to have a Wednesday Addams' sort of personality.

The abstract skull art depict expressions of fear. This is surprising since people would expect the portraits to be exacting fear instead. According to his website, "The monotype print is a study of impermanence." Perhaps it is this sense of impermanence that the skulls are repelling from.
