Ephemeral Youth

Vincent Bakkum is a painter and illustrator from Holland currently living in Finland. Using the ephemeral beauty of women as a symbol of death and decay, he says he enhances this idea by the cohabitation of beautiful young women with stuffed birds and fruits. However, these modern vanities are enlighten by bright colours and an obvious Asiatic inspiration.
