feature: ‘eclecticweirdo’ weekly illustration by nadya nickels – alter ego

May 4, 2015

Artist Nadya Nickels creates weekly illustrations for AFROPUNK showcasing the ‘Eclectic Weirdos’. This week’s piece is called ‘Alter ego’. Nadya tells us: “this figure is a representation of that portion of ourselves that deals with the harder things in life. I believe that when certain traumas or bad things occur most of us want to forget. Though there’s one part of us that can’t forget and that event can stay with us. In the back of your head. This figure is that part of us, the part that deals with the “issues”.
