Guernica - Tripoli

"What do you think an artist is? ...he is a political being, constantly aware of the heart breaking, passionate, or delightful things that happen in the world, shaping himself completely in their image. Painting is not done to decorate apartments. It is an instrument of war." — Pablo Picasso



The Guernica, painted by Picasso is an expression of pain, horror, anguish and disgust; what the artist felt after hearing the news of the terrible bombing of Guernica. I dedicate this blog post, to those losing their lives to fight for something that we tend to take for granted, freedom. 355km down south from where I live people are are being bombed by their own rulers.
