This artwork centers around the idea of people who primarily focus on themselves, thinking that such self-love alone will bring happiness.
With this painting, I want to highlight how this self-centered perspective can act as a shield, preventing us from experiencing the diverse and necessary facets of life. These golden-rimmed glasses symbolize the inward gaze, urging us to face life’s raw truths head-on.
In ‘Love Yourself,’ I invite you to cast aside the self-imposed barriers, to look outwards and embrace life in all its complexity.
