Creating Art on Your Mental Health Journey


Join guest David Robatin and Kristin as they discuss his mental health journey. Creating art became a way to work through alcoholism, mental illness, and more. David studied communications and art at Denison University and has been painting for quite a long time.He started to share his work more widely and continue to progress as a thinker and artist as I try new ways to explore his figures.

He uses mostly acrylics on art boards and canvas, and continue pushing the boundaries within his specific style. He has been influenced by everything from chiaroscuro to color field, from Dali to Rothko.

Emotional connection is the reason why he works in the style he developed.He wants the viewer to find themselves in his paintings and apply their own story. He explores the positive and negative feelings that we all go through…and wants to find a common experience with the viewer.
