Danny Sillada is a painter who happens to also write verses. Using both visual and literary mediums, it makes it easier for him to unburden himself of some carry-over angst either existential or inconsequential.
This is the classic case of art as therapy – when the artist purges himself of dark thoughts and bad emotions, all the negativism from his being, either through visible image or the written word.
Sillada says what he has gone through the creative process (the act of painting or drawing) is “much more cathartic and dramatically significant than the finished product itself” (the painting or drawing).
