This poster is a rebellion-like poster for the stopping and awareness of human trafficking, which includes selling people. Humans are not for sale.
The brown female stand for the earth and the country . The white children stand for human beings. The child exposed
from the mother’s torn womb is the people who suffer human trafficking. I painted layers of butterfly wings wrap their
bodies to stand for the or the strength of countless people who strive for stopping human trafficking. I hope these
wings piercing the darkness can bring light one day, and there is no more pain in the world.
A tragic experience like human trafficking can change a person forever. It breaks them mentally and often physically too. I wanted to depict that in my poster.
Life is like a long, long line. When bad things happened in some poor people’s lives, I hope that a pair of scissors
appears in their lives to cut the line and stop the bad things hurting them. My painting shows that a devil claw chasing
a group of children and a woman with her baby, and a pair of giant scissors will end the human trafficking. The line
will have a new beginning.
From the perspective of the family after the child was abducted, there is no baby in the crib in the center of the picture, and the missing person posters scattered in the room ,make the original cozy baby room reflect the sadness of the missing child’s parents.
The chefs (sellers) and diners (buyers) are enjoying the gingerbread men (victims) on the plate. With the color change of the gingerbread men and the fading decorations, they also represent the exploited body and mind.
Controlling people’s behavior should stop immediately.
I tried to portray the reality of human trafficking through tis poster. Getting passed the border may seem like a good idea for some. but once you cross it, you become a product for sale.
