Congo by Miko-M Congo by Miko-M
This is a piece to express the tragic conflict taking place in the Congo. It is not exposed properly by the media.

Here is an informative video:

And for those inclined to take further action:

I totally encourage anyone who is inspired to create a piece dedicated to the situation, as artists in such a connected online community it is extremely easy for us to expose this message to thousands.

Firstly--Thank you so much for making this piece. I've been following events in the Congo for a while--And I couldn't agree with you more. There needs to be far greater coverage on this issue in the Media. Especially because this isn't just some internal conflict in some poor African country, but because these are people being maimed, raped, and murdered for the sake of Industrial convenience: For cell phones, laptops, and the like. For OUR convenience.

Secondly, this is simply a beautiful piece! I can't believe it's received only 280 views to date. It's sad that a mediocre piece themed on some mainstream topic receives more attention than an extraordinary piece with a meaning.

Again, thank you.

Heart-wrenching, poignant and unsettling. Your mastery of life drawing comes full circle in this piece as does your intuitive understanding of composition. You've allowed the world a new lens through which to view centuries worth of ravage in the Africa Congo. As I've said countless times, I'm so proud :)
