As far as macabre artists go, Norwegian artist Erik Tidemann is about as twisted as they come.

Erik Tidemann uses a variety of mediums to create his macabre, gruesome and downright head-scratching works of art including photography, paint, sculptures, dead animals. Tidemann is “heavily influenced by trash culture, extreme subcultures, weird loners, Matthew Barney and taxidermy”.

The eccentric artist Erik Tidemann has even cast his deceased dog into one of his art exhibits, along with a cocoon full of dead dear, foxes and other cuddly animals. That piece of work that would make the people of PETA cringe.
