Art Never Dies is inspired by the cyclical nature of art, indicated by the infinite cycle of completion and destruction of the piece to symbolise the process of being present, getting lost, to die, and to be reborn, with the creation of every new piece.
The skull bulges with small, graphite drawings that suggest an awakening consciousness through magic mushrooms, Shamanism, meditation, and mathematics.
The artwork, therefore, is the product of automatic creation where ritual movements lead to streams-of-consciousness, emphasised by the mechanical, repetitive cycle of the opening and closing of the skull brought by the digital medium.
