Origin Story: Depression
Why I started drawing: In 2021 I had temporarily lost the ability to use words to express the intensity of my psychological pain due to depression-related cognitive decline.
I needed a new creative way to communicate my inner experiences, so I taught myself to use colors and abstract visual shapes to capture the complexity of my inner experiences in a non-verbal way and start processing old trauma.
Goal of the creative process: Express and process difficult psychological and emotional experiences.
Materials used: Markers, paper.
Dates of creation: September 2021 - January 2023
My drawings are owned as physical artworks and NFTs by collectors in Europe, Asia, and North America.
