The Book of Death
We are honoured to announce Heavy Music Artwork first solo artist book release Maxime Taccardi, The Book of Death. This rich volume includes poems, essays and illustrations by the artist executed with ink, acrylic, pencil and the artist blood. “My visions come from my dreams for most of the time; I try to let an open wound between reality and dreams. My Blood paintings are symbolically linked to that idea. I cut my wrists and use the brush directly on my wound. It is not intended to shock people as some would think but is merely a process. I see art as some sort of ritual, a chat between spirits and my mortal flesh. I do recall on what philosopher Plato said about art which is the manifestation of spirits through artist bodies.” Maxime Taccardi
We welcome wholesale enquiries and promo copies requests for reviews and interviews with the artist.
