2018 was when I learnt that I had fostered a mix of Moderate Anxiety & OCD. When my condition started improving, I spoke to mental health therapists for research & learnt that some people have it worse. Inspired, I decided to voice their helplessness through my art. The Anxiety Series visually translates emotions born out of various levels of anxiety. It aims at highlighting mental illnesses by making the emotions in every story relatable & tangible. It also encourages the audience to discuss mental health more openly, especially in a country like India, many parts of which see it as a taboo.
