it seems that you have strayed from the path and wound up on this peculiar little page of my website.
i must admit to being curious as to why you came here.. are you looking for answers? or are you simply lost? if the former [and given the nature of this particular digital outcrop] i feel a certain duty to explain myself..
i am known by the name CHRIS ZOMBIEKING. and, this is my stupid face…
most of my waking hours are spent in my art studio, which happens to be in Liverpool UK, above an enchanting establishment called ‘mello mello’.
i delight in painting DEATH, and endeavour to show how vibrant, and full of life and purpose it can be. less often i paint LIFE, wherein i attempt to show how bleak and meaningless it inherently is. inevitably the themes of rebirth and the cyclic nature of Nature rear their beautiful curves.
on reflection, these words make my artwork sound grand, important, and oh-so-serious. but it really is not. nor, i suspect, will viewers see these ideas present in my paintings. but they are there at some level, and my words matter not because at the end of the day i am simply pushing paint around on a canvas in a way that pleases me.
as well as the painting, i do illustration work and design t-shirts, and each year i make several hundred zombies. FUN ZOMBIEKING FACTIOD: i have a repetitive strain injury caused by throwing blood at people!
another FUN FACTOID would be that ‘my fingers are the most famous part of my body’! as, a couple of years ago i got a little tattoo and it kinda did the rounds on the interweb [link]. you may recognise it? or not? doesn’t matter really…
anyways, i think i’ve fulfilled my obligation of information for this about page.
