Mirsal; the illustrated unsent heartbreak letters project.
I started collecting heartbreak letters that were written by different people from all around the world in 2017 and finished illustrating 70 letters in the begging of 2019. After that I wrote my own heart break letter and made a video in March 2019, because I felt that I need to be vulnerable in thanking all of the people who were vulnerable with me and brave enough to send me their private deepest stories. These people come from different places all around the world; Jeddah, Peru, Barcelona, San Francisco, Cairo, Dubai, Al khartoum, Berlin, Beirut, Kuala lumpur, and much more. Each broken relationship has a different end and some of the letters are not even addressed to a romantic previous partner. However, the voice that seeks closure is the one thing in common between all the letters. These letters were never received by their intended people, so the artist turned them to illustrations. Each illustration either reflects on the heartbreak letter, or specifies a significant object to the relationship itself, an object only the sender and their previous partner would recognize or relate to.
