The Artwork of Shock Rocker Marilyn Manson
I must admit that I don’t know a lot about Marilyn Manson the person or Marilyn Manson the band. However, I recently discovered that Marilyn Manson the person is an artist. Even more interesting is that this past Halloween night he opened an art gallery in Hollywood devoted to his artwork. The gallery is called “The Celebritarian Corporation Gallery Of Fine Art”. According to his website, the current exhibit is “selected works by Marilyn Manson” and future exhibits will include “additional works by Marilyn Manson and other celebrated artists and collaborators”. The gallery is open by invitation or appointment only.
Marilyn Manson is a watercolor painter. His paintings are consistent with what you would probably expect based on his personal image. Most have what I would describe as an eerie deathlike quality, and there are some sexually explicit and violent images.
The image posted here is called “The Enabler.”
