    Description

    Simon Bisley - Original Acrylic Paintings (1992). Bisley's rise in popularity mirrors society's fascination with the extreme atmosphere of the World Wrestling Federation. Huge, if not monstrous characters that possess an invincible quality to them are the staple of a Bisley painting. But wrestlers come and go, along with faddish artists. Bisley has something more which appeals to a wider audience that is sure be appreciated long after the sweat of less accomplished artist has been swept from the visual arena. This particular painting pays strong homage to Frazetta's Death Dealer with its vultures in the air, weapons slung over the back of the foreground figure, and skeletal shape beneath these two imposing instruments of the carnage which is implied in the swirling reddish background of color. This exciting work of art was rendered on illustration paper and is in excellent shape. There are only a few small surface blemishes which in no way detract from the strength of this piece which measures 13.75" x 19.5".
