About The Artwork

As a photographing artist I was invited to participate in The Other Avatars project. Each participating artist was invited to create a series of artworks on the theme of Vincent van Gogh’s self portraits to be launched in Saatchi Art’s first digital NFT collection. My photographic art is all about geometry and rhythm, featuring architectural elements. Within this project I found my own approach by displaying Van Gogh’s portraits as huge murals on façades of buildings, all in frontal view. The skull is present once again in this composition. Not only as a reference to our own mortality and the irrelevance of earthly wealth but with the skull smoking a pipe a layer of Monty Pythonesque ridicule is added. In this work everything takes place on a more humble brick wall with tiny square windows. I immediately photographed this wall because of the beautiful reflections from the windows across the street, which also makes it a bit festive, in spite of the laughing skull beneath it all. The reflections almost look like legible signs of a mysterious text. This is a ready to hang artwork in a single edition. It is a photographic print on high quality paper behind plexiglass (Diasec) in museum quality finish. The plexiglass provides remarkable depth and brilliance to the art work. For extra stability it has an aluminum Dibond backpanel and a hidden wall mount frame. It is handsigned on the back and comes with a certificate of authenticity Contact Saatchi Art if you would prefer to purchase this work in a different size or finish.
