Death

People often speak about topics they don’t even know. But when the Reaper hits too close to you, you know what you speak about.

That’s why I have used Sumi-e to ink it. Reaper can hit so quickly ! I wanted to catch it as fast as it did, with only one Chinese calligraphic brush stroke. Just only one movement, using the same cutting edge like its scythe.

The dimensions of this ink are 30 X 30 cm.

  1. I really like this one. People who also met the Reaper understand this art piece.

  2. I know what you mean… It’s a universal topic. Here it is treated with an Occidental point of view with a Chinese calligraphic brush. I think it is a good way to relate West and Est, even if this topic is serious.

    I’m sure you should understand that I painted it because I needed inking it. Sumi-e is not only a way to paint, it’s a real way of life, without cheating.
