Artist Reveals The Shocking Reality Of Children Who Live In Favelas.

The diversity we see among people, countries, cultures, and every other difference is interesting in this free world. Anyhow, you know what, if you look at things closely, you will notice that this ‘free’ world is not that free to some people. Democracy, peace, and order are enjoyed by the privileged countries and their citizens. Even though the world has turned towards democracy and modernization, some countries fail to provide livelihoods. This leads people to go astray while building a degraded culture that never stands out for good.

One of the best examples you can notice in Brazil. It is a beautiful country with a lot of amazing things. However, the Favelas in Rio De Janeiro put people in a society where its citizens cannot outgrow the Favelas citizens’ culture. Going deep into the data, around 40% of the children growing up have witnessed people using firearms. Therefore, that influence in a child’s very beginning of life does not put them in a very safe or positive environment. This influence in their lives certainly strictly affects their choices, aspirations, and livelihood choices.

The greed of politicians and businesses has left the Favelas as they are controlled by the mob and the people. Actually, this negligence costs a lot more than what can be measured by currency. The children of Brazil’s future are at risk, while nobody really takes the initiative to make a change and see it go through.

In Morro dos Prazeres, community leaders told me last week that many children will probably have to repeat a grade. This is because so many classes have been canceled this school year due to police operations.

This tragic reality is presented by Brazil’s own artist Lukas Ricardo through his art project titled; “Art would liberate”. It demonstrates to the world how the culture of crime has influenced the young generation of Brazil. This collection of art is astounding with the power of its message. This graphical message that Lukas shows to the world is very expressive, as the art of a proper artist should be. Lukas hopes that his art would affect people to turn the world’s attention towards fixing this issue.

We shared a set of his influential art below for you to see. Scroll down to look at Lukas’ work and follow the links to know more about this fantastic artist.
