Editor's note: CultureMap is proud to present the latest installment in our partnership with KLRU's documentary series Arts in Context. This unique series celebrates stories about the arts in Austin and the people who make this such a vibrant and creative city.

Equipped with paint and fake blood, the artists of Grave Land FX are painting anything from gory to beautiful. Grave Land specializes in special effects, makeup, and face and bodypainting, and creates stunning and temporary works of art.
