Exploring Mental Health Through Artistry

Our aim is to spotlight the intricate relationship between artistry and mental health, facilitating dialogue, challenging stigmas and promoting understanding. In the 2023-2024 edition, we will be displaying the top 30 pieces in exhibition space all across Europe. We will also host a series of different online events to further shed light on the different nuances of mental health within the artistic world.

Squid in a wheelchair

It started as an art school exercise: I drew an antique wheelchair from observation, but couldn't simply leave it empty. So I decided to put a giant squid in it, as I really like cephalopods, intelligent but alien-looking fellows of the animal kingdom that they are. But then I've also realized that it represents me, and neurodivergence too, in a way: we need help to move through a world ill-suited to our differences, just as this squid couldn't move on land without its wheelchair.

Me and my dad were out walking in the forest during winter. I like the pattern created by the branches and the spots where there are no branches looks very pleasing.
