Artist From Poland Depicts His Fight Against Depression In A Series Of Surreal Illustrations
For Dawid Planeta art is something more than just visual quality - with the series of dark drawings he is exploring the other side of human unconsciousness. After going through depression last year he's using unique art to depict the places where dark feelings were coming from.
"You need to go deep, deeper than your conscious mind. This is where you find universal qualities that we all share, things we all feel although many times we don't understand. This is the way to really connect with others using your drawing ideas."
"It's a story of a man descending into darkness and chaos in search of himself. To find his inner strength, find the light and come back with it. And then, when he knows who he is, he goes there again, this time without fear. He goes there because it's a part of who he is. It's a part of human nature you can't ignore. You need to know all parts of life, dark and bright."
