Over the years, I have grown and developed a high admiration to the evolution of art. Growing up in a big city, art is a huge influence and is embedded in the trains, streets, building, etc. Watching art play out into my own personal life, it still remains relevant and has become more well rounded in the sense of art being the legitimate “right- hand ” to the nail art world.
The nail art that you see are from London nail artist, Boom Nails that is inspired recreation by American pop artist, Roy Lichtenstein sand dune painting! Inspired movingly by “Comic Strips”, in the 1960’s Lichtenstein was considered the lead creature of the new art movement.
Inspiration : Roy Lichenstein [Guild Hall East Hampton, 1980]

The nail-art empahasis today is zoom on the heavy detailing, which each protagonist is bought to life. Petrifying, frightening and mind bothering on every level, we are proud to present to you another segment of, Artist HIGHlight !!! :
Pennywise – From the movie “It” , this scary looking character primarily appears in the form of a clown (Pennywise) in order to attract his preferred prey of young children (This creature can take different form, but mostly appears as Pennywise the clown). The movie follows the adventures of seven children as they are terrorized by Pennywise, who exploits the fears and phobias of his victims in order to disguise himself while hunting for his prey.
Jigsaw– Based on the movie, “SAW“ this character builds deadly traps for his preys, which are often a symbolic demonstration of what Jigsaw perceives as a flaw in the person’s life. Jigsaw calls these tests “games”, and tells the person the “rules” of the game by audio or videotape. The rules are tasks that the person must perform in order to pass the test and survive. On some occasion, Jigsaw uses psychological torture as one of the test being used on his prey. However, the tasks often involve extreme self-mutilation and most of the traps are made of scavenged materials, rusty bolts, decaying iron, or anything else he thinks will help him create a new “game”.
Freddy– A serial killer from the movie, “Nightmare on Elm Street“, who uses a glove with four blades embedded in the fingers, to stalk and kill people in their dreams. All the murders that are suppose to only be in a dream is actually the deaths of each person in reality!!
Chucky – A killer “Good Guy” doll that had his soul transferred into the doll, seen in the movie, “Childs Play“, by using voodoo. In the first three films, he looks like a normal doll, but in the last three, he has many scars and stitches on his face and body. Despite his small size, Chucky has the strength of a full-grown man. He has tried to transfer his soul into others to escape his “Good Guy” doll body and get his revenge on the people. He fails to do so to, killing anyone who stands in his way.

Cunnt Facts: Sugar skulls represented a departed soul, which had the name written on the forehead and was placed on gravestone to honor the return of a particular spirit. Sugar skull art reflects the folk art style of big happy smiles, colorful icing and sparkly tin and glittery adornments.
Italian missionaries brought sugar art to the New World in the 17th century. The first Church mention of sugar art was from Palermo at Easter time when little sugar lambs and angels were made to adorn the side altars in the Catholic Church (Source: mexicansugarskull.com)
