Monsters within us

“Battle Inside” is my project for cancer patients who want to fight their disease through art. Read more about it here.

Everyone has fears, despair, moments of weakness. Sometimes we cry and wallow in self pity. But we also have strength. It is the reason we survive. In many workshops I’ve asked people to draw their strongest points. And to make it easier I suggested to use masks in the style of world folklore. Most nations have incredible masks depicting their enemies, helpers, gods or demons. You could try do draw one too!

African Face paints. By the way: sometimes it can be very healing to paint on yourself! 🙂
