Memento Mori is a Latin phrase, an artistic and symbolic reminder of the inevitability of death.


I am intrigued by the religious perspectives and the New Age concepts on life and death. I don't see death as the end nor a taboo subject matter that we should feel intimidated about. Instead, I see death as a beginning of a new journey to other planes of existence, where our consciousness continues to grow and explore in different forms and fashions.

In one of my paintings 'Blossom', flowers are extended from a beating heart nourished by its life force, each heartbeat reminds us of our mortality. I think the temporariness of flowers bears a strong resemblance to our life, both fascinating and temporary. Therefore, instead of being terrified by the idea of death, I think we should embrace the present moment and think of death as a reminder to live life to the fullest.
