Valentin Fabre

«Vanitas» for King Kong Magazine

Luc Bruyère in «Vanitas» for King Kong Magazine. I was inspired by paintings who’s called « Vanitas ».  Paintings executed in the Vanitas style were meant to remind viewers of the transience of life, the futility of pleasure, and the certainty of death. They also provided a moral justification for painting attractive objects. And there is a game with the vanity with the mirror : a modern representation of Narcissus. There is also a little reference to « Le Petit Prince » de Antoine de Saint-Exupéry », one of my favorite book ever.
