New York: Self-published, 2016. Limited Edition. David Stoupakis is a New York based dark surrealist artist. His work, inspired by fables, fairy tales and nostalgic allusions to the places and situations of his childhood, has always been focused on the evocation of dreamlike landscapes and psychologically complex characters often caught in the gloomy atmosphere of dramatic, apocalyptic scenarios.
Damien Echols was one of three teenagers arrested and convicted for a widely publicized murder in West Memphis, Arkansas known as the "West Memphis Three" in 1993. He spent 18 years on death row and was released as part of an unusual plea deal, asserting their innocence with a guilty plea under the Alfrod plea. A series of three documentaries produced over a period of ten years, titled "Paradise Lost" chronicled the high profile case. Echols, now living in New York City, wrote extensively in prison, has since published several books and creates visual art both individually and collaboratively; influenced by spiritual and magical practice. He developed an lexicon of enigmatic sigils which appear across the breadth of his work. As New. Limited giclée print edition of 20 on archival paper; signed by David Stoupakis and Damien Echols and numbered 12 of 20; 16x21." Item #9197
