The world stopped, everyone was grounded within the four walls of homes, and things kept running in circles. The Brutality of Living Behind Walls is a result of introspective musings and learnings brought upon by uncertainty.
Each artwork alludes to different diversions of breakthroughs that one must choose: paths that lead to more favorable outcomes or paths that lead to a tragic downward spiral of no return.
Breakdown or break free. A cruel reality. Brutal.
