The stranger in me is : A SHY KID
The title of my piece itself, “Epistaxis,” is a fancy medical term for nosebleeds. But for
me, it’s simply a memory of my daily childhood with blood issues and all the experiences
that came with it. The notebook becomes a delicate space where the inside and outside are juxtaposed. Coming in and coming out from this space always made it possible for me to understand myself better and to share my story with others. The pages are holding and
letting out at the same time how I feel. My “Epistaxis” is a reminder of my fragility and an
opportunity to let them out and paint them with a scarlet red.
I’m 24 years old and I enjoy cooking, eating, animals, vintage, and occasionally writing my
thoughts. If you ask me what I want to be when I grow up, I’ll simply respond, “a creative person”. I don’t like to label myself, but one thing I’m sure about in life is that I want to create ART in every possible way. Over the past year, I’ve been drawing countless images,
some of which have turned into animations, and others into small books or giant murals that are otherwise themes part of my daily life, with a sensitive eye to the queer community.
