This is Axel. He’s been serving witchcraft realness since before The Kids buying “Black Magic” shot glasses at Urban Outfitters were even born.
Trust me when I say his soul is blacker and more evil than yours. If you live in or around New York, you probably know of him, he’s something of a legend.
Also, he’s a total sweetheart and lives on the same block as our salon, so we had an art show for him tonight. He made the amazing baphomet on my belt that everybody covets. You can spot his pieces in Lady Gaga videos, but who cares about that when you can wear a crown of thorns with an eyeball in the middle of it, or wield a sword like this one?
My pictures don’t do his artwork justice, so I pilfered some better ones from this 2001 article about a collaborative show he did with John John Jesse, but really you should just come to the salon and see them for yourselves. We will have them up for a few weeks, and we have prints as well as the originals for sale. They are all painted in his own blood.
