Bit of a message in this artwork.
I used ballpoint pen and markers to draw this glitchy portrait of a tribal Amazonian shaman on a used Gucci bag. The glitch effect represents how the vulnerable native tribes around the world are fading away at this very moment. The factors threatening these precious cultures are mostly driven by Western Capitalism which is primarily driven by our own consumer society.
Are we brave enough to choose between our desire for nice things and keeping these cultures and wider environment safe.
