Art Description/Short Message:
"You understand... It is too far. I cannot carry this body with me. It is too heavy."
- The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint Exupery
The first in the Jonghyun x The Little Prince series, 'The Little Prince Among the Stars' is perhaps the most somber piece. It refers to the untimely and tragic death of Antoine de Saint Exupery's character at the end of his novella, after witnessing the cruelty of the adult world and longing for his beloved.
This piece is meant to invoke emotions of pain and sorrow. I hesitated in creating the piece, but I think suicide is a topic that needs to be acknowledged and talked about. If we do not recognize Jonghyun's death for what it was, then we risk repeating the past. Recognize the signs, seek help, hold your loved ones close.
