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
