The series began in 2020 as a response to the global pandemic, which was a great challenge to artists. Losing all your work and feeling a distinct lack of direction and purpose. It’s turned our life and the world upside down.

These creations are called Unbalanced. They’ve been born from a pandemic and are reaching out to fight against a new grim reality, they are frantically yearning for connections, for sex, for physical comfort and desperately trying to keep their shit together.

It is ok to feel unbalanced, in fact, it saved us.
