Creativity Marilyn Manson rather monotonous. His work is complementary to the image of the singer - a terrible, frightening, shocking. The watercolor paintings are executed in pale green, red, black and peach colors, but mostly it draws young Elizabeth Short, dreamed of playing on stage and, instead, dissected by a maniac in a quiet park in Los Angeles. This he did and portrays: that's cut into pieces Elizabeth lies on her back, her wounds oozing blood. But she's almost smiling, with a slit from ear to mouth, with pale green skin and orange-red lips. His works of great and terrible compares with Charles Baudelaire, and followed him like a flowering of evil: "Nobody knows who she might become. But it is more than just an idea, her death coincided peak of surrealism, which to me is strongly influenced. "

The appearance of Marilyn Manson at the opening ceremony until the last moment remained a big question. But what the opening without the artist? While a few guests drank wine and looked at the work of Manson himself "Mr. Magnificent hiding in the back room gallery. He arrived long before the official start of the event, but did not dare to appear to the public. Wandering around a few fans with pomaded gothic black lips and red roses in hand, stood near the entrance of another person 11 who did not get inside. Everyone was waiting for and wanted to see just one person, but did not even know that Manson has promised not to appear in public, if the opening of the exhibition will be his fans.

When the wine was dopito, and almost all have doubted that the King will come grotesque, Manson in his new company, no less flamboyant girlfriend, 19-year-old Evan Rachel Wood and surrounded by five security guards suddenly appeared in the gallery, and entered through the main entrance .

Clearly supports a gothic image, Manson appeared in court in Moscow eyes, as befits a true Goths, dressed in black with a thick layer of white powder on his face. Of the entire image was beaten only a dark maroon lip singer. His eyes were hidden under the dark glasses and his face did not express any emotions.

An artist immediately rushed to the flash of cameras and rushed to the entrance of all, without exception, the guests. Completely ignoring what is happening, Manson went upstairs and hid in the utility room door. Some, apparently, decided that the King will no longer appear, and began to disperse, some disappointed sigh: "And for this we come here?" But remained in the gallery.

After 10 minutes, Manson is still honored the audience with his appearance. Surrounded by bodyguards, he went to the first floor. To him immediately, through a ring of protection, broken girl in a black and gave a bright red rose. King Epatage smiled, took a flower and kissed the girl on the cheek. After that he went to one of his paintings and began to scrutinize it carefully, paying no, absolutely, no attention to what is happening around him stampede. After standing near the picture less than a minute, he again went to the second floor.

Went to re-appear after some time. It was not five minutes, as Manson, this time without a girlfriend, again calmly descended the stairs to the first floor, to walk along all of their drawings. While the Great and Terrible committed "victory lap", dragged him numerous notebooks. If doing a favor to fans, Manson languidly sign that on one invitation, then the other. The person did not change the star, and his eyes stared into nowhere.After going round the hall on the perimeter, King grotesque went upstairs to give interviews to several Russian television channels.
