Death of Walt was created by Mexican-born Arantxa Ximena Rodriguez, AKA AXR. Arantxa kindly sent us this piece of creative artwork for our skull exhibition, Celebrabis Vitae, and everyone absolutely loved it. It actually sold before I got to the exhibition myself, so basically between 6 and 6:30pm. That must be a world record or something!!
Arantxa Ximena Rodriguez, AXR, specialises in drawing facets, or fractals, which entails connecting singular objects together to make another object. Her style is definitely unique and this piece was inspired by a Mickey Mouse Skull which was sitting in front of a piece of her art which she photographed and framed. The artwork itself is packaged in a ornate golden box where it lives.
