Joey Schmidt-Muller is a Swiss/Australian artist known for his unique style “Traumatic Realism”, where he depicts pain, torture, nightmares and fears seen in creatures dancing and fighting, diving and flying. These creatures are created with the intention to arouse our level of consciousness and lead us from our condition of prisoners to self-liberation.
