Decorative Day of the Dead Inspired Artworks

Today is Dia de los Muertos or the Day of the Dead, a celebration so rich in imagery, it’s little wonder it inspires so many artists and designers.  The Day of the Dead is marked in Mexico and a number of other cultures to remember and honor loved ones who have passed away, but celebrations are far from sombre. You’re probably familiar with the most recognizable imagery associated with the Day of the Dead like the decorative Sugar Skulls or La Calavera Catrina (the elegant skull) but dig a little deeper and you’ll find that the day is laden with symbolism, right down to the colors. Below are just a few Day of the Dead inspired artworks on Redbubble. If you’re fascinated by the kind of art then it’s well worth reading up on related symbolism as it’s pretty fascinating stuff. Happy Day of the Dead!
