Mortality Meditation with Artist Toru Kamei

There’s not much information on Japanese artist Toru Kamei (at least not in English) available online.  But his pieces are wonderfully reminiscent of the Vanitas painting from the 1600-1700’s. When I’m fabulously wealthy I shall own all of them!  Evil cackle… etc… so on & so forth.

“Toru KAMEI was born in 1976. He is inspired by Vanitas and try to express transience but beautiful, by drawing common vanitas symbols include skulls, which are a reminder of the certainty of death, flower, which symbolize transience of beauty.”
