The Grim Wreather

Interview with Artist Blial Cabal

Interview with Artist Blial Cabal

I love discovering artists and following them on instagram.  What's even better than watching them make incredible work is working on a project together. I found Blial (follow him!) a couple years back perusing the hashtag "darkarts". I knew I wanted to work with him, I just needed a good excuse why. His unique block print style mixed with his dark psychedelic imagery is totally unique. So I decided to make some wreather merch. Here's the work of genius he came up with! So far I' m selling t-shirts, but a limited edition print is coming soon!  Here's the incredible piece: 

 

After working with him on a drawing I needed to know more. So I interviewed him. Without further ado...

Blial: 90's Gangsters & stick figures depicting scenes from WWI with tanks and army paratroopers.

Wreather: What comics did you read when you were kid?

Blial: No Comics, I read the Redwall series of fantasy novels by Brian Jacques (here's a link)

After getting to know Blial, I realized he's a two person team with his amazing partner. Here's a picture of the lovely couple.
