Improving books: DIY art therapy â€“ in pictures – The Guardian
Johan Deckmannâ€™s Art Therapy series combines his two professions: artist and psychotherapist. Using books found in antique shops as a canvas, he transforms the covers into satirical self-help titles, imagining a new narrative for them based on his observations of human behaviour (but never on his patients). â€œArt is a good platform for psychological interaction or awareness,â€ he says. â€œAs I see it, I make only one half of the work â€“ the other half is done in your head.â€ Deckmann adds: â€œHumour is a pretty convenient companion, given humankindâ€™s condition. I think gratitude, appreciation of being here and a portion of self-irony are the main keys to a happy life.â€
