Refugee Faces - The Dystopia Project
There are currently 5 urban ruin sculptures being developed for the Dystopia Project. The building above is devoted to the subject of Refugees. Attached to the front of the building are 7 black masks representing the 7 continents of the world. On the side is iconography representing the different refugee groups struggling around the globe. These are tough subjects. They are meant to be stark reminders of the world we currently live in. This tower stands 8 feet high and 2 feet deep. When completed it will contain at least a half dozen different pieces of street art and countless graffiti which has yet to be added.
Originally this sculpture was planned to also represent Immigrants, but due to the horrid situation of Immigration in the United States I decided to create another sculpture representing that subject. There will also be another representing climate refugees.
