Artist Draws Self-Portraits Under the Influence of Different Types of Drugs

loritab_image_201014

Bryan Lewis Saunders is a great artist and experimenter who is so devoted to his art that he made himself undergo a rather self-consuming experiment whereby he drew self-portraits under the influence of every type of drug one could imagine. He puts it as follows:

“After experiencing drastic changes in my environment, I looked for other experiences that might profoundly affect my perception of self. So I devised another experiment where everyday I took a different drug or intoxicant and drew myself under the influence. Within weeks I became lethargic and suffered mild brain damage that fortunately wasn’t irreparable. I am still conducting this experiment but over greater lapses of time and I only take drugs that are given to me.”

So here are the results. Also, don’t forget to check out Bryan’s latest work about self-portraits on psychological tests.
