Blind by ShannC
Blind
I chose to depict the somber themes of my work with vibrant colors, demonstrating the hope that can emerge from a situation that, at first glance, seems irreparable.

Deformation by ShannC
Deformation
This and others are based on the idea of obscurity or pain or being out of place from your own body and the uncomfortableness that comes with those things. I struggle with these things and it does come through in my paintings.

I started drawing more seriously about a year ago. I was just never dedicated enough to keep at it, but now it's very all consuming. I have a great hunger to learn more and I am searching out artists to learn from..but given my current situation, I am only able to draw from feeling. Being so new to the whole experience, I find that it is daunting to put one's self out there. Right now I am just learning on my own and going by instinct. My art mostly focuses on suffering and most times has an air of depression to it as i have had to deal with these all my life. I would describe my stuff as body dysmorphic in a way.
For many years i was just focused on fitness and personal training but it definitely has taken a bit of a back seat and I am extremely focused on this and making it my own.

I prefer contemporary art..something a little off putting and off centre. I am very inspired by street art, very bold and colourful with nothing to hide..just is what it is.
I choose to depict pain and suffering in a bright and characteristic style.

I know your work Foresight is not stock but I dared to use it because it just ideally fit  my idea and the background becoming the center of my dark image. I want your opinion but if you object to my using it , I"ll remove it.
 All the best Gali
