Depression is not easy thing to deal with, but sometimes you can take your weakness and turn it into something beautiful.

That's exactly what polish artist Dawid Planeta did - to help himself he created an imaginary world where a small man is traveling through long forgotten jungle meeting his weaknesses and fears presented as giant animals with glowing eyes. The vision created by the artist is dark, mysterious, and very beautiful.

“One challenge at a time, I try to turn into the face of fear and tell it “you are not my master, you are the product of my self and I am your master.” I look into the monster’s eyes until it disappears. Then I am free.” ― Rohvannyn Shaw
