The Day of the Dead, or Dia de Muertos, is a day to celebrate and honor those who have died, and to help them on their spiritual journey. Dean Russo's designed sugar skull is a great tribute to the Mexican holiday. Clay skulls called Calaveras were traditionally decorated with bright feathers and beads in remembrance of the deceased. More recently, however, edible candy skulls have become popular, and are decorated with colored cane sugar and icing, hence the name sugar skull! What a beautiful way to pay homage!
Artist Dean Russo draws inspiration from the urban landscape of his native hometown, Brooklyn, New York, and from his love for animals. Russo’s truly unique artwork is known for its brilliant colors and bold abstract designs of mesmerizing shapes and symbols.
