“Killing Me Is Killing You” digital painting

“Killing Me Is Killing You” is the last piece of the painting collection I created after album “Seven”. Meaning each track of the 2016 album now has a dedicated painting. For years I avoided to give a title to my works, but now as I do, I still leave the understanding of the concept to the audience. The paintings that are created after the tracks will bring a visual translation of the concept to the audience. Keep in mind its not about resolving a riddle, or discovering what a song/artwork means, but to see beyond forms and colors, and simply making you think while you enjoy the beauty of a piece.
