Chad Michael Ward's Pain Box
by Jamie E17

Chad Michael Ward has a dark heart. His art unveils a murky world of bloodied shadows, pain and grime. Whether he's directing music videos for metallers Dragonlord or rocker Derek Sherinain, creating background art for Marilyn Manson videos, designing posters, or taking photographs for his art books, there is a dark, grotesque sensibility that pervades his work, with plenty of beauties willing to bare all for his photographs. Chad's new book The Pain Box, featuring a series of images taken in an abandoned hospital is out soon.
