I’d like to discuss peace on a deeper level. Currently we’re living in an era where a lot of people feel unsafe. We see images on our screens that evoke feelings of insecurity, anger, hate, and despair. It almost feels as though there is electricity permeating through the air. It’s difficult to focus, feel good, or get to a place of happiness. Anxiety and stress are king and queen, with that comes the attitude of hopelessness.
So how do we overcome these feelings of despair. When so many are suffering around the world and even in our own home. What can one find? In order to survive, for self preservation, I suggest taking extreme care of self. Look inward and ask yourself “what can I do to find peace?” Trust me, you’ll get your answer, but only if you’re willing to listen. For some its mediation, yoga, running, deep conversation, walking their dog, petting their cat more, finding moments of laughter and really embracing that sensation. It all helps and can ease the pain in big ways, if we appreciate how these little actions, in fact help us.
When I gazed upon this beautiful piece of work by British graffist Shok-1 titled “Masterpeace”, it made me reflect on the current state of affairs. I was really drawn to this image because, one I love blue and secondly, the details for the x-ray hand are impressive. I’d also like to point out that the artist could not have chosen a better background color. With all that I’ve said about finding inner contentment, blue is one color that can aid with all of that. Blue evokes a sense of calm and helps ease feelings of anxiety, it’s tranquil. Simply splendid, Shok-1’s “Masterpeace” wall is honestly a masterpiece.
