Butcher Billy is rad. Very rad. This Brazilian artist has created one of the most unique, unusual and oddly awesome collection of new wave artists portraits, ever. Mr. Billy has married iconic new wave/ post-punk stars with popular superheros – like Siouxsie Sioux as Wonder Woman or Billy Idol as Aquaman -and the results are stunning. He said of his project, “Real people or imaginary characters, the incorruptible ideals of perfect superheroes or the human flaws and desires sometimes so desperately depicted in song lyrics.” Yeah, I’m not sure what that means either, but what I do know is that is art is amazing.
