Polish Artist Creates Mysterious Drawings To Illustrate His Fight Against Depression 0lam123Mini People/Facebook

Art is a peculiar one, especially as we teeter away from painting landscapes and pretty pictures and delve into painting what lies beneath the facade of human nature.

Painting the unseen – what the outside cannot see but what is often the only thing you, yourself as the artist can see, is pretty modern.

One man making a big impression on the art world at the minute is Polish artist, Dawid Planeta, who uses art to illustrate his fight against depression.

Quite fascinatingly, Dawid’s paintings depict a lone man. Completely alienated from all and everything. He journeys through a black and white jungle, and comes face to face with his fears and weaknesses – themselves personified as gargantuan animals.

Dawid’s world is a bleak one. It is dark, haunting, mysterious, yet childlike.

However what the paintings do suggest, is a light. A way out. A way of passing through the subconscious jungle as the hero.

Tackling all that is thrown against you and coming out stronger. At least, that’s what I interpret from Dawid’s paintings.

Dawid typically accompanies his posts with relatable quotes and anecdotes.

Writing beneath one of his pieces, Dawid explains:

This thought is going to stay with me – some of you know, most of you don’t – I’m leaving to visit the real jungle, to experience it fully, to see it, smell it, touch it and hear it.

I will spend one month traveling through Colombia and seeing life and myself from a different perspective. I hope I will come back with a lot stories to tell.

Thank you for being here.

My own mind is my laboratory; by researching my mind I can reach more universal truths and create images and heroes other people can identify with.

The feedback I received so far made me realize that depicting my feelings makes others understand that they are not alone with their struggles.
