Maxime Taccardi “The King is Dead, Long Live the King” (painted with my blood)
Today I’ve heard the death of an amazing artist, Hans Ruedi Giger, one man I wish I had met. I guess I will in the other side. I used my blood to paint his portrait for an obvious reason, to spread some of myself as a homage, an offering… May he rest in peace.
