Woman in the wind of fate
The illustrated character is Chira Chiralina, a legend of the city and a kind of metaphorical cornerstone of Brăila. The mural talks about the condition of women in a society, where we find the same problems as 100 years ago: objectification , aggression, blaming the victim. This work is a wake-up call, an attempt to remind passers-by that violence against women must stop. The building of the Maria Filotti theater, another symbol of the city, covers her eyes, to hide her beauty from the gaze of passers-by, just as women are advised to cover their bodies to avoid temptation. As most of the subjects of my recent works this one had, behind the colorful illustrations, political and social messages, alarm signals for our society, This is my way of protesting.
