Pintura Obscura: Memento Mori


4th Annual Dark & Whimsical Art Exhibit

Curated by Kira Aguirre / @vampkira_art


November 6th - November 29th 2020


Pintura Obscura is an annual dark arts themed exhibit created to showcase dark and whimsical artists who have an obscure point of view. This year’s Pintura Obscura theme is “Memento Mori” which is a latin phrase that means "Remember you must die" or "remember death" a reminder of the inevitability of death. This phrase is contemplated across all cultures, religions and beliefs. The ancient practice of reflection on mortality helps one value the one life that we all have to live. Who thinks about death? it is in fact, inevitable. This exhibit will focus on different interpretations that the artists have on the macabre ideas and thoughts of death and the living.
