Artist Statement: 
This piece was drawn for the final Rebirth concert, marking the death of the band. I used graveyard imagery to convey this while attempting to include motifs of song lyrics (burning flag, flowers in the skull, amnesty candle & a king protea flower). I also included a burning chimney stack which is a reference to the Instinct of Suffering piece (see earlier works) which spawned the Rebirth X logo. 
The piece was then edited in photoshop to add in the red details before being printed on A1 posters which were given out at the concert.
