A number of people affected annually by depression continue to climb but how each individual copes is a whole different story. 

Some people seek counseling or medication. Others dive into focused activities and creative outlets.

For one Polish-based painter, art was the perfect outlet and coping mechanism. His name is Dawid Planeta and his paintings depict his personal battles and struggle with depression yet they reach the inner souls of millions upon millions of others who struggle daily with the debilitating mood disorder. 

The paintings are dark and mysterious, to say the least, but they are also very elegant and quite frankly: breathtaking.
