Italian artist Matteo Gallinelli created a digital art series called 'Life is Golden' that focuses on disease. These intriguing disease-centered artworks depict the more technical aspects of disease, and each photo encourages viewers to support disease research via a small caption at the bottom.

These photos look as though they feature bronze and silver anatomy sculptures. They depict what happens to the human body when diseases like lung cancer or cirrhosis are thrown into the mix. Despite their subject, these disease art pictures are actually quite stunning.

One of these shots is labelled Bulimia, and shows a human skull expelling green bubbles, large and small. Another is labelled Aneurysm and shows a bronze-colored human brain overflowing with strange pink bubbles.

These interesting artworks are not just visually creative, but also informative and thought-provoking. Stats for Disease-Focused Digital Art Trending: Older & Average
