Created by veterans as a non-traditional art therapy vehicle, Infantry Art helps veterans challenged with Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) and Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome (PTSD) express and process the pain, trauma, and loss on their journey to recovery. Using mortar shells and paint, explosion art turns the deadly explosives into a powerful mechanism for expression and healing. The resulting works create a dramatic and chaotic representation of their experiences.
