An Artsy Protest



This is how the fine art students at the Indonesia University of Education (UPI Bandung) voice their protest. The writings on the left and right sides of the painting read "It's not the bulding, but the persons."

The painting and the writings were placed in front of the location of a demolished old building where a new building will soon be erected.

Such a strong painting, quite a protest.
Your having the young woman looking at it adds a lot.

Meaningful !! That's why Street art exists, to express oneself.
I have seen a painting in a museum of Venezia that is representing hell. I've never forgotten it. This painting of the student's protest remind me it.
