Based in China, Chilean visual artist Fernando Gomez Balbontin has painted a series of thought-provoking artworks that explores the theme of life and death.
Aptly called ‘Thoughts About Life and Death’, the portraits depict the aftermath scenes of accidents with crushed vehicles and figures next to it. The artist chose to portray the accidents in a beautiful manner, to showcase the “beauty among the wreckage” and that tragedy is not about the physical damage.
“Denying death is denying life. [It is] necessary to understand that tragedy is not the supposedly reality of death. Tragedy is about not accepting this possibility and consequently, not having enough time to live,” explained Balbontin.
