About the Artist - Enhypnion
Ever since I was a young kid, I have always been fascinated by nightmares, lucid dreams, sleep paralysis, and hypnagogic hallucinations, all of which I experience far too often. These are the main source of my inspiration. I often also work with themes surrounding my experiences with ADHD and life-long depression.
As described by the 2nd-century greek diviner Artemidorus in his work Oneirocritica, enhypnion are dreams which arise from an extraordinary fear or irrational desire. I thought this word would make a perfect moniker for my art.
I mostly work in digital mediums and animation, but more and more I try to explore other mediums, always looking for the perfect form to bring into this world all the things that dwell in my mind's dark corners. I hope you enjoy this small peek into those dark places.
