“The work for this series is inspired by the struggle to find balance and the quest for happiness. This is an issue I feel affects all of us every day as we attempt to create a peaceful and organised mind. It seems natural at this point to apply aspects of my practice to illustrating and raising awareness of both problems and solutions associated with mental health awareness. Art has the power to create a space to ask questions without necessarily demanding answers. I am excited at the prospect of my artwork being associated with Mind and the work they are doing to support people with mental health problems.” David Shillinglaw
