Black Uroborus – Literally tied to Nature

Stephen Wilson aka Black Uroborus is a New York illustrator and has already done works for Masakari, Tree of Sores and Lurker.
Black Uroborus’ artwork is not what you would call the “typical blood-and-gore type of metal imagery”. It is still dark and gloomy, but less brutal and aggressive, what you see is more organic.

Here is – in his own words – a succinct description for such depth of work: It is a symbiosis of “metal, mythology, Lovecraftian themes, nature and spiritual decay”.

“DECAY I”

“DECAY VI”

His work is highly textural and detailed and each piece contains – from pain and death to humanity’s inexorable connection to our place in Nature’s cycles. Very often you recognise tree roots, blood vessels and worm-like creatures.

“VEIN”

“TRUTH OF MIND”

“CHALICESH”

“FORESTFLOOR III”
