About the Artwork:
“This piece is about the transition between life and death as a spiritual state. On the top is the life image of a woman, who slowly melts into a death version of herself. At the same time on the life side, she’s surrounded by nature and movement. On the Death side she’s into a more cosmic/spiritual/psychedelic place, and with the 3rd eye fully open. Also, to illustrate the life/death transition, there’s an eye closing transition on the right side of the artwork.” – Diego Andrade
