Black Lotus by Rob Rek - is an exquisite example of the photo realistic style with which the artist’s name has become synonymous.

This piece is set against a dramatically simplistic ultra white background focusing attention exclusively on the subject - An arrestingly lifelike human skull sporting a mohawk and lotus tattoo encircling it's ear. The artist's attention to detail is meticulous resulting in a perfect anatomical reproduction of the human skull.

The artists hyperrealist style captures the minute details of the subject in this larger the life scale painting.

The artwork is a modern adaptation of the ancient Dutch Vanitas style, which invites the viewer to consider their mortality and questions the significance of placing value on material possesions.


** this artwork is framed in a custom made black float frame finished in matt paint.
