Welcome to MelancholyMarket!

We collect beautiful, wistful, melancholic art. We only accept art with a melancholy theme! Must be new art (from 2019 onwards). Only finished, polished, well-presented art!

Only gallery-style art! This means no design sheets, works without background, comics, split screens, DA watermark, text, frames, logos etc. We don't accept nudity, mature content, violence, suicide, gore, horror, political etc.

I can barely conceive of a type of beauty in which there is no melancholy.
Charles Baudelaire

Nothing's so dainty sweet as lovely melancholy.
Francis Beaumont

Melancholy is the happiness of being sad.
Victor Hugo

I'm Not a Girl by larryh Leaving Iowa 2B by rrileyillustration

Frederichstrasse Portrait 2 by ProletarianGothic

Brushstrokes of RecoveryStep one.
Take the brush and
gently dip it in black
before you put it on
the canvas and paint
the night sky.
Slowly you cover
the canvas in darkness;
soon not a speck of light
will be left in your
[painted] world.
Step two.
Clean the brush and
Listen to what the doctors
tell you and remember
the meaning of all
that medical
Step three.
You try to get up
but you can’t.
It is as if you are
chained to this stool;
like your life.
Hold on to the brush
and pick a dark blue
don’t forget to look
up at the clouds
making darkness
contrast with
what used to be.
Step four.
Push the memories
of a past life away
you know that thinking
about it will make you
want to paint in black
Step five.
Sing a song while
longingly looking at
white paint;
wishing you were
ready to use it
but instead you pick
Purple like the bow
you used to wear in your hair
before your life
was overtaken by doctors
and words you never
RunGo, then -
run where the end of the world
waits on silent haunches.
My many mouths will not stop you.
You like how the air slips
and the sun is siphoned
in a jar.
You like my discomfort -
thin broth and blankets
and my chapped lips
chasing rain across the glass.
I will not lie down
or wallow.
I will not cup you
in my hands
or make a hymn
from your destruction.
I will only pretend to sleep,
to breathe you in
like a blister
and believe your leaving
is my final word.
