Painters can always create their own styles to create images that are blatantly theirs. Such an example is lowbrow painter David Lozeau (pronounced “low-zo”), whose paintings of characters inspired by the Day of the Dead have graced magazines, book covers, and collaborations with brands like Disney and Harley-Davidson.

Other than winning awards at several fine art exhibitions and getting his work featured in galleries around the world, “DLo” and his work are featured in places all over San Diego, where he is based. Most of his work are inspired by zombies, tiki imagery, hot rods, tattoos, and of course the Day of the Dead. That explains why skulls are a recurring theme in his designs, but they’re easier on the eyes than you’d imagine.

He mixes oils with other media and he has no fear of experimenting with surfaces to paint on. He has layered acrylics and gouache, using places like surfboards, violins, vintage car parts, and various other things. Here are just some of his outrageously great pieces, some of which are for sale:
