Godfather of GORE Expression! The Art of DADO (Miodrag Đurić)

DADO was  Yugoslavian-born painter, engraver, illustrator and sculptor that spent most of his life in France. His career spanned many decades, and his creative output was prolific. His paintings from the 60’s look like they could be on a powerviolence, or some other kind of extreme music, record cover…When I look at his creations, I can not believe that his imagination was that far ahead! Have a look for yourself – DADO was a genius! Check out the Dado Virtual Museum for more images of his work.

    Legit. His black and white stuff reminds me of Stephen Gammell’s work…Gammell illustrated the cult children’s books Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark (before they redid the art…). Wonder if Gammell was influenced by Dado.
