When he grew up, his parents expected a lot from him as a child.
He felt an enormous pressure to meet these expectations.
This pressure turned into dissatisfaction, toward himself and to others.
Eventually, the accumulated discontent became anger.
He represented this anger in through drawing, as intense feelings.
He wanted to express the anger.
This anger also means the voice of the heart, passion.
