'BURN BEFORE READING'

 

'Tarik went on his trip from Axum-Ethiopia to London-UK, but found out he lost more than he gained by following the vague and dangerous dream of a perfect and wealthy life.'


The paint ‘language’ used in this African Refugees series is derived from the African barbershop signs. Signs that often refer to the Western world as an idealistic and fashionable place to be and that are fuel for the dreams of young African men and making them risk their lives at sea to reach the promised land.
