Vanitas Painting

Vanity paintings are allegories of death, often still lifes made up of symbolic elements such as the skull and butterflies which we found associated in Philippe Pasqua's and Ludo's works of art. They can be very colourful in Laurence Chiche's works or more sober in Bryan Ley's, simplified in Tarek's, Skepa's and Ykstreetart's works, or more detailed in Alain Rodier's. Generally accompanied by objects associated with death (traditionally or for the artist himself), vanities can be multiplied as in Stan's case. Some artists also diverts the motif of vanity as Eric Liot or Takeru Amano.
