“The art show you have to be crazy to enter” says the poster for the third annual Touched by Fire show.

Artists had to meet two criteria to submit the art for the show, which took place Nov. 26 at the Royal Ontario Museum. First, the art had to be two-dimensional. Second, the artist must have first-hand experience of a mood disorder.

Consider the Bee, by Joey DAMMIT! was the most expensive piece of art at the show, with a price tag of $4,500.

Victory by Triada

Here is a great song by a Russian hip-hop group Triada. Sad and beautiful hip-hop about the Second World War – yes, it’s possible.
