The Nihilist by VictoriaOlt The Nihilist by VictoriaOlt

The nihilist illustrates a very common occurrence, in which a youth has been forced into believing in a god by their parents and by society. The clown makeup represents that she, being an atheist, feels ridiculous faking her beliefs to satisfy her parents. The crown of thorns symbolizes the existential agony that lying to herself causes. Her expression shows a hidden but deep-rooted hatred, and the shades of red and violet serve to underline the existence of violent ideas in the mind of the protagonist.
