About Cryin' Shame

Cryin' Shame is a collection of original artwork that sometimes delves into the unusual and creepy, often depicting strange phenomena, as well as everyday objects and animals. The fine black linework drawings, with occasional blocks of colour, takes weird, often obvious, occasionally subtle, sometimes funny (and dry) references that can appeal to everyone.

The name Cryin' Shame is from the 60s British pop group, The Cryin' Shames. It embodies the essence of sorrow and hidden beauty found in unconventional places.

I'm Metta, a Finnish-Canadian artist, and I've been drawing and painting for as long as I can remember. Embracing the strange and macabre, my artwork reflects a fascination for all things creepy and unusual, often combined with weird humour.
