This painting represents the ups and downs of bipolar disorder. specifically named mania representing the manic state of a person with bipolar disorder. The setting of this image is underwater with the sun, rainbow and lighter blue water representing a happier or manic state while the angler fish, octopus, and darker water represent the deep dark depression one will fall into after a manic episode. People tend to ridicule those with labeled mental illnesses not realizing we all share these characteristics, but in smaller doses. My goal is to make light of some of the disorders ridiculed and break the stigma that surrounds them, as well as making them relatable to everyone.
