A tribute to an icon of music history and the transience of being …

It feels like it’s been ages since I’ve posted anything new on my site. But that’s life – sometimes there are times when other things take priority. A lot has happened – among other things, I emigrated to a new country and am currently reviewing a lot of things.

So this artwork isn’t really new either, but it’s another one of those things that I think is too good to be left to rot on a hard disk. Originally, this motif was part of a streetwear collection that I made for a former friend. As life goes, the whole project came to nothing in the end, as did the long-standing friendship.

In retrospect, it was probably the right thing to do and it shows once again that nothing in the world is permanent. Everything is subject to transienceAll the more reason to focus more strongly on life in the present. We never know how long something good or bad will last. But one thing is certain, it will pass! So it’s all the more important to fully embrace the good moments in life and always make the most of everything, but without becoming attached to them.

As part of my new Dead Icons series (formerly Dead Rockstars), this motif is dedicated to the theme of transience and the legendary Rap icon Tupac Amaru Shakur and his song “Hellrazor”. Stylistically combined with Synthwave and Back Metal elements, as all these things influenced me in a certain way as a young person.

In this sense, here’s to transience. Rest In Power Tupac!
