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


In "Memento Mori 5.0," David Galán presents a striking visual narrative that embodies the intersection of life's vibrant diversity with the stark reminder of its end. This A3-sized wood board piece captivates through its contrasting imagery, inspired by the thought-provoking concept of "The Law of One," a philosophy that suggests a profound interconnectedness of all existence.

Galán's artwork invites viewers to reflect on the universal experience of life and death, unity and individuality. The central skull, crowned with vivid colors and intricate patterns, symbolizes the achievements and status often pursued in life. Yet, these adornments do not alter the fundamental truth of our mortality, instead, they celebrate the individual journey within the collective tapestry of humanity.

The viewers are encouraged to delve into their perceptions of life's cycle, contemplating the ephemeral nature of status and the underlying oneness that connects us. The radiant, interlocking background patterns signify life's continuous flow and interconnectedness, while the crowned skull remains a humble memento of our shared destiny.

The choice of a wood board medium is purposeful, grounding the ethereal subject matter with its inherent solidity and endurance. The juxtaposition of illustrative detail with vibrant abstract forms bridges traditional memento mori with modern stylistic elements, creating a piece that is both a visual delight and a catalyst for introspection.

"Memento Mori 5.0" is an artistic manifesto that calls for an appreciation of the now within the grander scope of existence. Galán's vision transforms the canvas into a contemplative space, urging us to consider our place in the vast network of life. This addition to the Memento Mori series is a significant contribution to contemporary art dialogue, enriching the viewer's understanding of life's profound interconnectedness.
