Hey, I'm Damian Oleksiuk, and I work at the intersection of conflict, art, and design.
Making things just to make them has its place but with anxieties running high, resources on the low, creating art and design that might somehow solve an internal or societal issue is where I like to dance.
I've loved to draw since I was a kid, have been designing planters and beds for the past two years, and have been studying conflict facilitation and meditation for five.
Aside from the work you see here, my BIG CONCRETE MISSION is to design holistic mental health hospitals/centers that help people to resolve extreme states and find the freedom to create more meaningful, stable, and healthy lives (I'll also design other spaces that help ease people's nervous systems).
Stay sane(ish) out there.
