Resilience in Nature is amazing. This tiny little yellow 14-spot ladybird was hiding from the wind eating an aphid under a bramble. We have watched butterflies missing half their wings flying on blustery days. Seven legged spiders out hunting. Covid 19 is helping us learn how resilient we are too.

“Imposter” was created as the final piece of my graphic design degree. It was created during 9 weeks of complete isolation in lockdown and is based around the mental condition of Imposter Syndrome, the feeling that no matter how hard you work you never deserve what you achieve, that you're a fraud and you will eventually be exposed. This condition affects 70% of the population at some point in their lives and it is something I tackle every day.
I want to show through these posters that by talking about how you feel, realising others feel the same and learning how to work with your negative thoughts instead of fighting them you can build up a resilience and use the negativity to your advantage.

I am 19, and an Art student studying and living in Cork. I have been developing my street art skills for 8 years starting with graffiti to where my focus is now, creating multilayer stencils of different figures and objects in juxtaposition or with a sociopolitical twist in order to highlight the current issues and generational contrast in society today in a light-hearted digestible way.

A collection of photos of plants popping up here and there, growing in unexpected places in an urban environment.. so it occurred to me that it would fit the 'Resilience' theme quite well!

in this illustration I wanted to focus more on the elegance of resilience. I chose the word "elegant" because the power of resilience is slowly effective. This words describes something that it is very delicate and strong at the same time.

this picture gave me the inspiration for this project. I enjoy making plants compositions at home. Just recently one of my catctus has shown me how slow but strong the resilience process can be. This reminded me that this power is also within us as natural species. We are resilience and strong enough to fight back any trouble, injustice and "storm" in our lives.

Tell Us About Your Art:

It all starts in our heads, our fears and enemies are born in the confinement of the beholders mind. On that battlefield the war goes on, one for which all others are eventually drawn out. It only takes resilience to overcome that and gradually, relentlessly stand to the fight, even if there seems not to be a goal in it nowhere on the horizon, as the prize cannot be embraced and comprehended from the ground level and all the discomforts within.

The person in the image heals her wounds by painting her own story of empowerment.
