Original artwork description:

Instasham looks at the dark side of social media. The figure is a body builder who's only focus is to create an image that will attract attention and reward with validation. Body dysmorphia is on the rise. He will never be perfect but that doesn't matter anymore, not even what is true matters only the image. Body builders are increasingly shortening their lives for their physical appearance. Then drip is both a reference to this and the drug like dependency we have for social media. What was once a underground culture is now every school boys day to day reality.
