Japanese Artist Realistically Depicts the Horrors of Depression and Mental Illness, and It Might Be You

Art has many faces, colors and shapes but not single one of them can be caged in a category. We all live in a world where being busy is the new definition of luxury. No one should be free or they aren’t successful enough. But when it all boils down to the point when we have to look in the mirror, in our own eyes and tell ourselves everything will be fine – we fail.

Most of us are broken and waiting for someone to come and save us. Then, there is a category of people who have two or sometimes multiple faces to show to the world as they are too afraid that if the world sees the real them, they will be destroyed.

Japanese Artist Avogado6 through his illustrations shows what mental illness looks like and how it is affecting the population on Earth. He has mastered the art of inking down the harsh reality of mental illness which many refuse to face.

This one is an eye-opener.
