Fernando Gomez Balbontin – Thoughts About Life and Death

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.
