Rx Skull Evolution

We’ve been working with Portland based street artist, Rx Skulls (ARREX), for quite a few years now and have seen him grow into a prolific street artist screen printing his own skull stickers which are now seen all over the world. No skull show would be complete without his work!

Rx Skulls says of his work,

I am a strangely positive but morbid adhesive obsessed exterior decorator who enjoys long walks on the concrete and handmade works of art.  I screen print and hand cut all my stickers and posters, every piece of which begins with a single skull photograph I took in the Museum of History in London years ago. Cancer, tumors, “memento mori” themed artwork, a creative mother, and a surgeon father all came together to make Rx the street artist.

Rx Skulls also does our Street Anatomy stickers that you’ve received if you have ever ordered a product from the Street Anatomy Gallery Store!

We’ll be handing out samples of his fantastic stickers on opening night which is this Friday, May 31st, 5–9 PM at the International Museum of Surgical Science.

    Hey..I was up in Chicago for the Street Anatomy opening in March. Would’ve loved to been up there for the opening of Face Off as well. What two artists would I like to see collaborate if they could? Frida Kahlo and Basquiat. Both had a fascination with anatomy. Kahlo was a pre-med student before her accident. Grey’s Anatomy was Basquiat’
    s favorite book as a child and Grey was the name of his band. I’d like to see them do a mural, which would be the ultimate street anatomy!
