Dying Africa by Oli4D Dying Africa by Oli4D
Dying Africa...
Well... this should just visualize something that went through my mind today.. that it almost seems that africa is dying... or better: the people... specially because of hunger... and even more dangerous and brutal: AIDS...
Its horrible and very sad what happens down there :-(
That inspired me to do this minimalistic painting.

edit: did some very little changes at the facial expression.

It is just too bad powerful governments don't give a crap about Africa. It's in dire need of major resourses and help.

naja nei also mär mues natürli scho luege wem mär spendet... ich unterstütze nur Organisatione wo das ganze ganz gezielt und praktisch awendet. Helvetas z.B. wo sich zum Ziel gmacht hät besseri Wasserversorgige z`baue... eim vo ganz zentrale Schlüsselelement für ä besseri Entwicklig.

es isch ja nöd so das die seriöse Hilfwerk eifach chönd mache was sie wänd. Die werdet sehr gnau überwacht vom Staat und oft au dä UNO. Nur drun sinds au offiziell anerkannt und zertifiziert. Ich finde das seit scho au öppis us. Und es git ja au immer peinlichst gnaui Bricht für was sie wänn wo wie viel Geld usgäh händ ect ect damit alles nahvollzieh bar und au kontrollierbar isch falls märs kontrolliere will.

Nice one this

We humans r not here to live to enjoy ....
We r here to fight - to live - to enjoy ....
And everything can be faught agains .... but not negligence -> which is father of all evils

An Artiste can only express .... people have to do it for themselves
