cardboard, acrylic paint, black sharpie; 8×16”
“My art piece showcases the issue of homelessness. I wanted to bring this issue to life physically. I utilized cardboard, often used as a sign by homeless men/women to ask for assistance. The piece also includes a hand-painted illustration of two homeless men. It showcases a raw, un-cut depiction of poverty, and the ongoing epidemic of homelessness.”
