Belgium-born artist Raphael Vincenzi crafted a series of mixed media images of self-pitying portraits. Each image has one focal feature in the center, which is surrounded by and is even made up with words and slogans. Some examples of these read “You will never be rich,” or “Forget about it” and even “Trust no one.”

These discouraging words are shocking to read on the page, yet that negativity is something that many young women and men hear and deal with everyday. Sometimes an individual’s mind can be in the darkest depths of depression and through these images, Raphel Vincenzi reveals that inner sadness. What would your image read if an artist got a snapshot of your head? These powerful and vulnerable art pieces disclose a side of people that they often hide from the public.
