DYLAN VAN VLIET
Through different kinds of media I’m exploring my melancholic inner world where I show you my deepest thoughts and feelings in a place that’s already broken.
Melancholy has been my friend ever since I was a child, the dark side of life has always attracted me. Over the years I suffered multiple depressions and at the age of 25 I got diagnosed with borderline. From this moment on this is my biggest source of inspiration.
My art comes from an intimate place. By using my own experiences in life I want to take the viewer into a world that’s invisible to most people.
I want them to feel it, relate to it. Cause an experience.
