All Treats, No Tricks

Don't miss out on these scarily good artworks this spooky season

Halloween began as the festival of Samhain.

It was part of the ancient Celtic religion in Britain and other parts of Europe.

At the end of summer, the Celts thought the barrier between our world and the world of ghosts and spirits got really thin.

This meant weird creatures with strange powers could wander about on Earth.

The Celts had a big party. It was all about scaring away the ghosts and spirits.

Later, with the Christian religion, the day became known as All Hallows' Eve - the day before All Saints' Day on 1 November.



Spooky season is in full swing at the moment.

Push the chocolate from the 'Trick or Treat' tin away and indulge in some fabulous art to keep the scaries at bay.

 


Photographer and digital artist, Michelle Mackie's dramatic artwork can have a gothic and mysterious feel to it.

'Woodland Whispers', has a pagan foreboding feeling, 'Blind Beauty' focuses on a mysterious figure and 'The Puppet Show' has a definite spooky macabre aura.

 



Hubble Bubble Toil and Trouble, Fire Burn and Cauldron Bubble!'

If you're looking for a bewitching companion, then Edge Sculpture will have the perfect piece for you!

From black cats, to raging werewolves. Take a look through their portfolio here.


 

'Little Monsters' is the latest painting to arrive at Adamo Gallery from Danny Abrahams' studio in Yorkshire.

We love how he's captured the nostalgia and excitement for trick or treating! Not so sure, we'd be so keen to run toward the creepy haunted house these days though?

The ghostly moon and fabulous colour palette add the eerie atmosphere of the artwork.


 

If you're looking for something anatomical to celebrate with this Halloween, look no further than Monica Vincent's digital creations.

Passionate about tattooing, Monica's artworks are full of intricately designed tattoos which you'd find on a vintage flash sheet. 'Wrapping' these designs around her subject, she manages to convey depth and texture perfectly.


 

'Sleep all day, party all night, never grow old, never die. It's fun to be a vampire!'

JJ Adams is a mixed media contemporary pop artist and graphic designer. JJ uses a range of mixed media formats to create his striking and bold artworks. His work can be described as a simple formula of remixing old with something new.

We love this graphic take on the classic Vampire cult film; 'Lost Boys'. Complete with noodle boxes and Jim Morrison vampire cave poster.

It wouldn't be Halloween without a horror movie or two...

Talk about terrifying?!

For shock value, these Paul Oz artworks will no doubt get a fabulous reaction.

Both are hand embellished canvases, meaning they are incredibly textured offering lots of depth and movement.
