AUM through ART: The Wounded
"It is through being Wounded that power grows and can, in the end, become tremendous.” -Friedrich Nietzsch The Wounded is the main character in Faculty 3 and represents our vulnerabilities. History alone reveals unspeakable acts of cruelty to remind us of humanity’s frailty while some would even say we are injured as soon as we exit the womb. Regardless of source, however - whether it’s a back ache, heart break or anything in between - we all know pain and suffering in our own personal way. NYC Artist, Anya Student and Project AUM Contributor, Carlos Vazquez depicts the many elements of the Wounded in this original work of art.

Melissa made the trek over to New York City in 2009 where she immediately began studying with Studio Anya. She has since explored all things Anya as a student and a teacher, an artist and liason.
