Original painting on A3 size woodboard. One of a kind. Signed and titled at the back. Unframed.


In "Memento Mori 3.0," David Galán continues his profound exploration of life's impermanence through a captivating fusion of traditional symbolism and modern dynamism. This piece, part of a critically acclaimed series, is crafted on an A3 wooden panel, employing a diverse range of materials including acrylics, gesso, glue, glazing medium, gold paint, and graphite pencil to create a work that is as texturally rich as it is visually compelling.

Galán draws inspiration from the ubiquitous human experience of contemplating our existence and the timeless allure of memento mori art throughout history. This work is intended to evoke introspection about the beauty of life's temporality and the personal resonance that death holds in the continuum of life. Viewers are encouraged to reflect on the vibrancy of the present moment, as the artwork's vivid backdrop juxtaposes with the starkness of the central skull, a dialogue between the cacophony of life and the silence of mortality.

The choice of materials and style is deliberate; the graphite pencil offers a raw, stripped-back portrayal of the skull, symbolizing the fundamental truth of our nature. The use of golden paint and glazing medium enriches the work with luminosity and depth, enhancing the visual contrast and metaphorical light that shines through our complex lives.

"Memento Mori 3.0" stands not only as a testament to Galán's skillful blend of mediums and his intricate craftsmanship but also to the series' thematic depth. With each iteration, the artist invites us to confront the inescapable, to find comfort in the familiar and to seek out the extraordinary in our everyday existence.

This series is an exemplary addition to any collection, offering an ongoing conversation with our deepest selves. It is a celebration of the cycles that define our reality, a thoughtful commemoration of all that we are, and a poignant reminder to embrace the journey of life with all its ephemeral splendour.
