French artist Goin recently painted a new mural in Grenoble, France, for the Grenoble Street Art Festival. He also launched a print for the World Refugee Day. 50% of all sales will be donated to help the MOAS (Migrant Offshore Aid Station).
Entitled “Lady Refugee”, this mural is dedicated to the migrants who sail the Mediterranean sea to Europe in insecure boats, fleeing their countries devastated either by war or poverty.
The mural depicts a woman with the typical refugee lifejacket and a barbed wire halo over her head. From her hands flies a white dove, which is a symbol of peace. The work is accompanied by Warsan Shire‘s quote: “No one puts their children in a boat unless the water is safer than the land“.
To help refugees, the artist also realized a print edition of 100, launched for the World Refugee Day and available in his website store at www.goinart.net/store. 50% of all sales will be donated to help the MOAS (Migrant Offshore Aid Station) save lives at sea.
