“Death and Life” was inspired by a photo I took at one of the Metro stations in DC and the painting “Death and Life” by Gustav Klimt. Essentially both images had a baby in my brain. I wanted something overwhelming and bright.
Some people have asked me about the crosses. Crosses cover the garments of Death in Klimt’s painting and I really like the effect and how it looks. I included a skull so that the reference would be clearer.
