Well the title speaks for itself.
I can’t think of anything more pretentious than an artist (and a part-time artist at that) writing a lenghty description on one of his self-portraits rather than simply saying yes, this one is my story.
It took me 30+ years to rediscover my true self. This portrait is a testament to all the years I spent desperately trying to justify my self-worth through external validation.
At the risk of contradicting what I’ve just said a second ago, let me tell you one more thing:
To whoever that is looking at this artwork; I’m not sure about Übermensch, but I can confirm that what doesn’t kill you, makes you stronger. At least in my case, I believe it did.
