Enter the Inner Struggles of DAVID JIEN, the Whoriders, and the Lizardmen

One of the most fascinating tendencies of human beings has to be our assumption that everyone else is doing just fine. It’s just us who struggle internally. It’s just us who battle our thoughts. It’s just us who distort the world with our minds. In reality, there’s nothing more human than an inner demon. So often, we walk through the world listening to an inner monologue that tells us everyone else’s minds are silent. That’s why David Jien’s art is so compelling. His work follows the saga of the valiant Whoriders and the evil Lizardmen as they do endless battle against one another. Their world reflects the cluttered and chaotic landscape of the human mind as ego struggles to dominate consciousness. There’s so much to look at in each piece, and there’s something in each of these for everyone to be triggered by…
