God Told Me to Skin You Alive (1995)

From: $120.00 - $800.00

This collage was created as the album cover for Green Day’s “Insomniac” and is called God Told Me to Skin You Alive, a ref­er­ence to Dead Kennedys first album, “Fresh Fruit for Rot­ting Veg­eta­bles”.  Inter­est­ingly enough, the cover art con­tains an image (the den­tist) that was orig­i­nally used in a col­lage fea­tured in the insert book­let art of Dead Kennedys’ album Plas­tic Surgery Dis­as­ters.  There are also three skulls on the entire album cover– one for each mem­ber of Green Day. One of the skulls requires you to view the piece at an angle. The hid­den skull is taken from Hans Holbein’s 1533 paint­ing The Ambassadors.

Available as signed limited edition Giclée print on Somerset Velvet, or as an open edition metal or bamboo mounted print.

NOTE:  Dimensions for Somerset velvet prints are for “live” area.  There will be an additional 1″-2″ border.  Metal and Bamboo Mounted prints are full bleed.
