Yoshitoshi Kanemaki – Memento Mori

Japanese artist Yoshitoshi Kanemaki uses Japanese wood carving techniques to create giant sculptures from large blocks of camphor wood. Each sculpture impressively stands anywhere between 5 and 17 feet tall. His characters are fused with death, looking as if they are either burdened with it or embracing it, truly embodying memento mori on a massive scale.

Mural by Borondo For Living Walls ‘14 - Atlanta, USA
The prolific Spanish artist painted this stunning signature piece which is combined with a quote by Martin Luther King Jr.  "In the End, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends.". Yet another unique and powerful mural by the Spanish sensation.”
