Cultured fear, 2020

Artist Statement:

Using pencil as a medium I tend to portray my subjects in a way that task the mind of the audience causing them to think and put themselves in the shoes/situation of the subject character. My art identifies the subject as a wanderer, someone in search of his or her true identity.

The series explores confusion in thoughts, fantasies, reality and wandering. It is an emotional state portrayed in expression. Lost identity reflects on the subject as not visible to reality. The subject struggles to find and be found as his mind is perceived to be under the influence of something that drives it away from the external.
