Mike Shinoda's paintings

One of my favourite songwriters, the incredibly talented Mike Shinoda from LP and Fort Minor, is about to open an exhibit of his paintings at the Japanese American National Museum in Los Angeles.
Highly influenced by the vanitas genre (for the non versed in the matter vanitas is a latin word that means emptiness and as style it reached its peak in the 16th century. It was a form of symbolic still-life painting that denounced the relativism of the human knowledge and the futility of vanity juxtaposed to the ephemeral existence in which all objects represented are symbols of fragility, time passing, the short nature of life and ultimately death) the exhibit will be called Glorious Excess and it "borns" on july 12th and will "die" on January 2009.
