Schizophrenic art

  1. Oct 22, 2011 #1
    These are by Nick Blinko, formerly lead singer of a punk rock band known as Rudimentary Peni. He's actually know probably more for his art work that he does all while completely off his medications to control his schizophrenia (for which he's been hospitalized for multiple times). I find the work fascinating, at the same time frightening. It's amazing to see just how far the brain can go and what comes out of the deepest corners of the most uninhibited minds. The level of detail, obsession, and repeating patterns is what I find frightening the most.
