KALEID Gallery is proud to present VANITAS.

Vanitas vanitatum omnia vanitas. ~ Vanity of vanities; all is vanity.

A Vanitas is a work of art based on the idea of the transience of human existence and the knowledge that all has it’s end.  They have been common throughout the history of art, sometimes incredibly morbid with a sharp focus on death, others with obscured meaning hidden beneath a veneer of beauty.  KALEID presents over 40 artists and their contemporary interpretation of the classic theme VANITAS.
