Painting: Ink, Oil, Paper on Paper.

This oil on paper is a part of the project “Out of Africa” focusing on the African migration crisis. As Libya has become the gatekeeper to the safe haven of Europe many lay their lives in the hands of human smugglers. They set out on the 200 miles deadly journey on the Mediterranean Sea in overcrowded dinghies made of cheap plastic and equipped with tiny engines with limited fuel.

Most of the boats are only made to just make it into international waters 13 miles from the coast of Libya. This is a human tragedy that we can’t ignore.

30% of the profit of this painting will go to Moas (Migrant Offshore Aid Station).
