Heavy Metal Comfy Time

Joe Nolan borrowed this post from his friends at Art Czar.

Hector Hernandez does a great series of super-short artist-interviews on the Czar site.

This is a micro-chat with Heavy Metal quilter extraordinaire, Ben Venom:

Question: Tell me about “Bang Your Head”

I’m interested in juxtaposing traditional handmade crafts with one of the more extreme musical genres, Heavy Metal. My work can be described as a collision of Iron Maiden Metal ballads with the outrageous stage antics of Ozzy Osbourne. Serious, yet attempting to take on a B movie Horror film style where even the beasts of Metal need a warm blanket to sleep with. The question remains…Can I play with madness?

Listen to Heavy Metal While You Sleep!
