After Slowly Dying For 10 Years, Artist Starts Seeing Abstract Art When She Closes Her Eyes

Published 4 years ago

Sometimes, inspiration strikes like lightnin, and you just can’t stop making pop vintage collages. That’s the story of Eugenia Loli. She had been suffering from autoimmune problems for years – she described it as “10 years of very slowly dying” – before discovering she was intolerant to gluten. And that’s how her art started.

“When that happened, and I started healing, my brain sort of re-wired,” Loli wrote on Bored Panda. “I’d close my eyes in the shower, and I’d see abstract art. I’d go to bed at night, and I’d see abstract art. I’d laugh hard, and I’d see abstract art. And all of that, when completely sober! My husband insisted it’s just me, healing, but I felt like it was someone programming my mind.”
