Art Description

Painting: Acrylic on Canvas.

Libya slave trade inspired me to portray this work

This art work describes the anguish and pains migrants who crossed the Mediterranean Sea to Libya were subjected to. It explains in clear terms how some Nigerians among African refugees were chained and held in detention in readiness for slavery.
According to the artwork, blood of innocent Nigerians spilled over Libyans all in an attempt to search for greener pasture. Some of these victims ended up in Libya with the thought of going to Dubai to seek employment outside the country not knowing they would end up as slaves.
They were tricked by trafficking suspects to take them overseas for better life. They ended up being maltreated and tortured to death as a result of irresponsible government and Nigeria’s poor socio-economic status.
However, some of the returnees appealed to federal and state governments to provide job opportunities for Nigerian youth to prevent them from endangering their lives looking for greener pasture abroad.
