Human Trafficking

abstract painting



The black part of the painting represents the normal life people live, which is not very happy anyway, therefore black. The yellow part represents the hell , that the victims of human trafficking are living in. In between these two parts there is the trafficker ( the big figure with the cigarette in his mouth) who is picking up people from their life (black part) and throwing them into hell (yellow part), specifically throwing them into a huge boiling tank like the ones the sinners are supposed to suffer in hell.

Abstract Figures

The figure on the right is supposed to be the great master of hell.  In addition, it is he who just cant get enough for his big fat ass. Similarly, it represents all these costumed rich f….s who make money from this corrupt system. This living hell that feeds their greed. After that, generally the painting aims to have an effect of movement (when looking at it feeling sort of movement and maybe a little bit dizzy i would say). This is like the constant movement of the trafficking victims across the globe

Few words:

This piece was inspired by forced labor and sexual slavery. Above all, these are the two fundamental constructions of human greed. People picked up from their life and forced to live for someone else, without asking and without warning.  In other words, you are suddenly chosen.  And you must sacrifice your life for someone you don’t even know.  For someone who just can’t get enough. For instance, how could it feel to be randomly selected to live in hell while still being alive?
