My Yokai and I - Pink lady
THE HIDDEN THINGS
Monster, demons, ghosts, spooks. The stories we tell come from our most deepest and fearful thoughts. Aren’t all of these fantastic and yet disturbing stories simple lies that hide a deeper truth?
Hidden things it’s a collection of artworks inspired by the darkest feelings we experience in life, feelings that we try to hide behind fantasies and incoherent lies.

The feeling of being slowly absorbed by our Yokais. My Yokai and I is a digital artwork that reflects the emotion of being consumed by dark thoughts such as loneliness, depression and sorrow. The Yokai that surround the principal character give the impression that they are growing bigger around her while she is being slowly absorbed in this demon parade. Her facial expression does not hide the pain and even in the struggle she seems to have accepted her fate. Maybe the answer is not to fight the Yokai but to befriend them?
About the ARTIST :
Lhunatica, 28, is a Venezuelan illustrator who, at the age of 22, embarked on a journey as a political refugee to France in the pursuit of life-changing experiences, safety and meaningful connections. All of this compelled her to leave her family behind and make a home in foreign lands, which have in turn, helped her reinvent herself on her new path towards artistic expression.
Lhunatica began drawing at a very young age. It wasn’t until the age of 12, however, that, whilst marvelling at Diego Vélazquez’ works at the Prado Museum in Madrid, she discovered the wonders of art and decided that this would in fact, become her true raison d’être.
In the words of Henry Matisse - “creativity takes courage” and it is precisely that which has enabled her to hone and conceptualise her artistry - unafraid to reconcile with her feelings of solitude, uncertainty, and doubt to create a world of fantasy for her and others to rejoice.
