International Justice



Justice and art must join hands. They have to go through these difficult years together. Hand in hand. They are amazing building tools.
What is justice if not the perfect balance between all human beings? What is art if not the extraordinary balance of a composition?
Art must scream justice and soften souls, push each of us to jump into the void of the unknown without fear, recognizing the space necessary for a peaceful life for every human being.
