Art about social anxiety can be wretched to look at. All the eyes. All the misery.

Have you ever thought about what the person talking to you is thinking about? Did you ever think they could read your mind? The world has so many scary people inside it. They were judging this, I just know it. They were plotting this, I just now hurt it. Don’t go to parties. Don’t go outside at all. Art about social anxiety depicts the eyes of all the people upon you. The wanting to bolt for the door. The paranoia above all else.

Mentally Ill Art illustrates the unraveling of a mind and the lead-up to it’s breakdown. It is not for the light of heart, but for those who have struggled. One who is in the throws of mental illness is caged within their lack of control. Therefore, their moods and perceptions overwhelm their behaviors. In effect, no one sees the person when the illness takes center-stage, bowing as it twirls and nosedives the survivor’s entire life into chaos and destruction. Psychiatric facilities are operating at full capacity as suicidal thoughts are sweeping over humanity. Fear riddles patients who scream and laugh and weep. By visualizing our neurotic symptoms through surreal expressionism, we come to face them. When facing them, we begin a conversation. This conversation leads to healing.
