Chilean visual artist Fernando Gomez Balbontin has painted a series of thought-provoking artworks that explores the theme of life and death. Aptly entitled “Thoughts About Life and Death”, the portraits depict the aftermath scenes of accidents with crushed vehicles and figures next to it. Balbontin chose to portray the accidents to showcase the “beauty among the wreckage” and that tragedy is not about the physical and material damage.

The End Is Here – New York, Los Angeles and Paris are all underwater. Alex Cherry created the ‘Endpire’ Series imagining a world where icons of our most powerful cities, seen from miles around by thousands of people at any given time, are underwater. This is what the artist had to say about the work:
“The idea is that each image is from the viewpoint of the last person alive to see that monument in person. It’s like you’re just sitting here, alive, but also knowing that there’s 0% chance for survival”, says Cherry.
Prints from ‘Endpire’ are now available in a variety of Fine Art Print formats as well as in a set of 3 Mini Art Blocks. Alex Cherry’s work is published exclusively by Eyes On Walls.
