Polish Artist Illustrates His Fight Against Depression

01Polish Artist Illustrates His Fight Against Depression“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

Depression is not easy thing to deal with, it’s a mental health condition characterized by hopelessness.

But sometimes you can take your weakness and turn it into something beautiful. Dawid Planeta is a Polish artist who battles his depression by painting.

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.
