    A project about anxiety that is going on in the inside of a mind.
A series that simply express the moment of an abrupt implosion of emotions caused by anxiety. Tangled, messy complicated strokes is portrayed on portraits to show what is really going on in the inside of a mind. To highlight this negative emotions, I hope that we could turn it up to the positive; to open conversations, to remind you that you're not alone, to regain new strength and to believe that everything is gonna be okay.
There are 4 portraits in this series. Each of them is a limited piece that is numbered and signed. Portraits are printed on a high quality textured paper, while the details on top of each portraits are drawn manually with oil pastels.
Every piece is uniquely different by its own.

This series is also featured at Stylist Magazine UK, click here to learn more about the article.

From time to time, I experienced this "break down". It doesn't always happen, but when it strikes, it feels like parts of me are malfunctioning. Imagine that you are on your table staring at a blank white paper trying to produce work, and then a hundred things abruptly start to race to your mind. Things like self doubt, fears, deadlines, incapabilities, imperfection...and even irrelevant thoughts like a guilty feeling of eating the whole box of chocolate biscuits that late night. Those all get real messy and mixed up. You don't know why you feel that way, but suddenly the white blank paper become so, so daunting. Now you get sweaty palms and you just can't start anything cause in the back of your mind, you tell yourself that whatever you're about to do will be a mistake.

It could go on for days, or even weeks. You feel extremely uninspired, always bored, you also eat snack excessively even when you don't feel like eating at all. The worst of all is you get nothing done cause whenever you're about to start, the mixed up thoughts race in like crazy again—and that added to the whole depressed feeling for not being productive.

And that, that is one of the worst feeling. Ever.
