LIFE is lived but once, so why fill it with hate or discrimination?

Artist Statement

The world we live in is beautiful because of its differences. If all the people were the same, the world would not be as beautiful. These differences are the reason that the earth is moving around. “All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights. They are endowed with reason and conscience and should act toward each other in a spirit of brotherhood.”- King Kuroush of Persia. This artwork is a collage painting and it was mostly painted with markers. I decided to draw all the nations together with colorful background and clothes to show the happiness which we can create by respecting each other and by accepting our differences for creating a better world.
