About the Book
About diving into the abyss of your psyche: it's less about the fall and more about what you yell on the way down. The darkness, the depression, and the flirtations with the edge are like footnotes in my biography; the plot sometimes reads like a twisted psychological thriller.
These words and pages of manic, desperate poetry are an existential punching bag. As Klosterman might say about the paradox of pop culture – it's an escape from and a confrontation with reality. My art follows a script and is a multi-level paradox and method to process existence's absurdity and make sense of the senseless.
Therapeutic, like a late-night, caffeine-fueled debate about the existential crisis in a Tarantino movie. It acknowledges the darkness, then pokes it with a stick to see what squirms. It is finding narrative within the chaos of truth in a world that often feels like a team of overworked, underpaid sitcom writers are in charge of scripting our every step.
It's finding the irony in pain, the humor in despair, and the universal truth in personal suffering while stealthfully dodging self-pity and aiming for a self-aware introspection that borders the absurd.
I will never stab my Elliot Smith heart or murder what has been created here.
I am still wild and free.
Am I an alchemist?
If so, come closer to me.
My work is defiant within the kaleidoscope. Inspired by the raw spirit of outliers like Cohen, Bukowski, Bangs, Welsh, Klosterman, and Burroughs, my creations delve into deep psychological and poetic territories of the underdog.
Journey through themes that weave the fabric of human existence – love, culture, self-perception, life and death, and the intricacies of interpersonal relationships.
