Modern Eden Gallery is pleased to announce “Dark Art: A Tribute to Metal” featuring  works inspired by heavy metal music and classic cover art illustrations.  Each artist will take inspiration from the musical genre and create works filled with dark symbolism and masculine intensity. The attitude of Heavy Metal will be illustrated with satanic imagery, paying homage to the legends of Metal and those classic illustrators of the 60’s, 70’s, and 80’s.
