Cities of Hope Mural project invited 9 artists to Manchester, UK with the objective to force witness to 9 key social justice issues: homelessness, gay rights, the environment, immigration and supporting refugees, sustainability, conflict, war children.
The Spanish street artist Hyuro who blends politics and a surrealist sensibility in her uncanny black-and-white murals, painted a mural on the war children entitled ¨War impact in children lives¨
“Both armed conflict and violence affect the lives of many children in different parts of the world. In addition to the direct consequences of war and armed violence, the children are also indirectly affected by displacement, loss of family and trauma, that is caused by the acts of violence they witness. This wall is intended to give a voice to all the lost innocence, all children who are fighting for their own survival, unable to live a childhood as they deserve.” – Hyuro
