Horror is just a word; it’ll never have the impact of the thing it tries to describe.

A visual representation of this word would go a lot further, and indeed it does just that in the work of Canadian sculpture David Altmejd.

His work looks like it belongs in a fashion shop for creatures of the night, a place where werewolves go to shop.

The contrast between the highly decorative and the strangely repulsive makes his work extremely original.

"I think about decay not in a negative way, but in the sense of creating a space for things to start growing," he explains. Stats for Disturbing Art Installations Trending: Older & Chilly
