Polish graphic designer aims to turn his deep depression into something beautiful and creative. This is the way Dawid Planeta tends to deal with his struggles and the result is brilliant. Dawid obviously channeling his problems creates a dark and mysterious world with little men fighting the great beasts in its gray jungle. Poetic, with a strong sense of hope and bravery, torch in little man’s arms and eyes of the beasts illuminate the dark art. Dawid’s work feels little like a modern video game style such seen in ‘Shadow of the Colossus’ and ‘The Last Guardian’ by legendary Fumito Ueda. “Depression – it’s not easy to deal with, but when you try, you can stop thinking about it as a weakness and turn it into something brilliant. That’s what I aim to accomplish with my art. The things I’m trying to depict are dark, mysterious and frightening, but if you look closely, you will find excitement, passion, and joy,” says Dawid. These photos are part of the series called ‘Mini People in the Jungle‘ and you can check it out on Facebook.
