Artist's description:

"Morbus Dissidentiae Phreneticae" (2013)

This painting is about the mental disorder shizophrenia.
Schizophrenia is a mental disorder characterized by abnormal social behavior and failure to understand what is real. Common symptoms include false beliefs, unclear or confused thinking, hearing voices, reduced social engagement and emotional expression, and a lack of motivation. People often have additional mental health problems such as anxiety disorders, major depressive illness or substance use disorder. Symptoms typically come on gradually, begin in young adulthood, and last a long time.

The cause of schizophrenia is believed to be a combination of environmental and genetic factors. Possible environmental factors include being raised in a city, cannabis use, certain infections, parental age, and poor nutrition during pregnancy.Schizophrenia does not imply a "split personality" or "multiple personality disorder" — a condition with which it is often confused in public perception.
