Victor Manuel is an plastic artist based in Tenerife, (Canary Island, Spain), I met him when we were studying Fine Art in Tenerife. He has worked in different media, such as canvas, paper, etching, etc…This piece of work won my heart, I think it is very clever the way he has used the flip flops as a support to express this very sensitive message. It talks about the vast amount of refugees that arrive at the islands coasts every day seeking a better life. Unfortunally many of then die in their way there or are deported back to their countries. (This is a very upsetting and important subject that deserve much more than I can write in here).
I hope you enjoy this work as much as I do.
