This painting is a portrait of myself and my fish, Mozart, who passed away two years ago. I titled this piece Lacrimosa which means “tearful” in Latin. Lacrimosa is part of Requiem Mass, the last piece by the composer, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, who wrote it before dying in 1791. The song reveals the mankind’s deepest emotions and fear of death. In this painting, I imagined him swimming along to the song.
