Toru Kamei

Vanitas art by Toru Kamei has stolen our heat.  “Toru KAMEI was born in 1976. He is inspired by Vanitas and try to express transience but beautiful, by drawing common vanitas symbols include skulls, which are a reminder of the certainty of death, flower, which symbolize transience of beauty.”

Here is a lovely way to start your week. The bats may not fit the vanitas theme, but, well, SWS welcomes the deviation.
