The Silent War

This touching campaign was by artist Greg Richards on a topic so sensitive and difficult to express. The Silent Wars is a campaign aimed to raise awareness of rape in South Africa . What distinguishes this campaign from others is medium of art chosen by the artist. It brings the pain and struggle of at larger than life and the simplicity of the portraits gives a clear and concise message. He truly captures the sensitivity of the issues in our society.

Note: The artist is not of African descent, but the message relates to Africa, therefore it qualifies. He conveys the topic in a manner that credits all who may have been in such situations

Id like to use this opportunity to ask all the followers and viewers to like our Facebook page. I appreciate all your views, comments and support of this ever-growing vision.
