Human Trafficking

 

Explanation:

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. The figure on the right is supposed to be the great master of hell, who just cant get enough for
his big fat ass and represents all these costumed rich f….s who make money out of this system. This
living hell that feeds their greed. 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), like the constant
movement of the trafficking victims across the globe

 

Few words:

This piece was inspired by forced labor and sexual slavery. Two fundamental constructions of human greed.
People picked up from their life and forced to live for someone else. Without asking, without warning. One day you are suddenly chosen to sacrifice your life for someone you don’t even know, for someone who just can’t get enough.
How could it feel to be randomly selected to live in hell while still being alive?
