Nefelíbata (Portuguese) (n.) lit. “cloudwalker”; one who lives in the clouds of their own imagination, or one who does not obey by the conventions of society, literature, or art.
I came across the word on Instagram, I think. It describes me well to quite an extent. I created this blog in 2010 (I was 13), to put some of my art out there. Expressing on paper through art and colour is something I’ve done since forever. It keeps me sane.
Over the last couple of years, I’ve made sure to sort of religiously post everything presentable I create on Instagram and WordPress.
Here’s hoping you connect to some of what you see.
