Chaos and Chill

Updated: Apr 17




These years had been an emotional landslide for all of us. As much as we wanted to help the people that are in need we couldn't. For we must first help ourselves and prioritize the people that are closer to us. Not being selfish though, but that is the main key to surviving this abomination,

Some are lucky enough to be able to sustain their needs and continue a lifestyle that now is scarce and limited.

But some couldn't move forward and continue their daily lives. They can't show and be transparent about it.

These paintings I created for our group show called RECONNECTION by Artiste Space

together with 18 more artists in the metro. Curated by Norlie Meimban .


Shows my huge concern for mental awareness and self-care. I created a parallel view of artworks using acrylic fluorescent paint and black light.

To extend my message, that overthinking and uncontrollable emotions can cause illusions that lead to self-destruction and chaos. It's a hidden trigger on every one of us. An unspoken code that people are afraid to express and ask for help.

Dealing with anxiety and self-care during these chaotic times.

It's a woman overthinking her fate.

She is watching a big explosion of herself, wearing a gas mask and kissing the deadly smoke, holding a grenade (which symbolizes her anxiety and problems ) and sipping her cup of tea that makes her calm.
