WHAT IS SALEM?
Salem was a city that involved a series of witch trials back in 1692. People that were not considered a custom to the social norms were accused of being witches. Furthermore, some 'witches' were arrested, tortured and at some extremities, would be executed. Biblically, Salem was a city filled with 'wicked people' and to an extent, everyone who considered themselves righteous would flee to avoid interaction with these wicked afflictions.
Salem7 is a society for the freaks, by a freak.
If you're a misfit, then I humbly welcome you. With open arms, as a citizen, and a family member, in my upside down world. Here we are celebrating the weird and the ugly and everything opposite to perfection, because I believe that in chaos there is also a form of beauty :-)
Because it means everything!!! It's a symbol of life, nature, everything around us. There are 7 days in the week, 7 billion people on the earth, 7 notes on the musical scale, 7 directions, 7 deadly sins, 7 wonders of the world, 7 celestial planets, 7 colours in a rainbow etc.
According to numerology, the 7 is the seeker, the thinker and searcher of truth. The 7 doesn’t take anything at face value- it is always trying to understand the underlying, hidden truths. The 7 knows that nothing is as it seems and that reality is often hidden behind illusions...
Salem7 is colourful and animated and quirky and fun. But, ironically, it is laced with controversial, violent, erotic, antisocial n destructive themes.
As a witch, practicing shadow-work is necessary. Acknowledging the hidden, darker, scary parts of yourself, and learning to be okay with them... That is where you find your power. I guess that's Salem7 in a nutshell.
Obviously, right now, it's clothes... I started as a painter, I like to write, I dabble with photography and I can play a few instruments... Perhaps tomorrow, I will be making furniture, or films (I wanted to be a director when I was small). I never want to be restricted to one art form.
Salem7 is whatever I want it to be. For now, you get to wear it ;-)
Salem7 is a world, but also just a kid (me)...
Excited, naive, forgiving and continuously refusing to EVER grow up.
This is my space... but also, thank-you, for acknowledging my space, my safe haven. My tiny footprint in this lovely, fucked up world...
I was screaming "I AM HERE!" and you heard me.
Welcome to Salem7!
I am so excited to share it with you :-)
Ps. Sorry bout the Harry Potter novel hahah...
PPS. did you know that this font is my handwriting?!
How cool is that??? <3
Deeply fascinated with the perspective and perception of the world from the point of view of an adolescent mind, in related ideas of nostalgia, mystery, curiosity and confrontation. My deep passion and interest towards horror movies, ghost stories, witchcraft, Halloween and alien conspiracies heavily inspires my creativity on the regular. Lacing it with pop and youth culture themes to animate these spooky beings in a sense that makes them more relatable to misfit teenagers.
I also just really enjoy making whatever is 'cool' to me (duhh) Or painting things that relate to how I might be feeling at the time, or maybe they're just reflections of how I see the world.
it's not thaaat deep lmao
