Having created popular series of illustrations like “Holy Selfie,” “World Leader“, “Global Police” and “Just Leaders,” painter Gunduz Aghayev is back with a new work called “Imagine.”
This time, the illustrations are about children. The painter condemns those who want to make children part of their dirty play. Children are innocent and we have to give our all for their future. We have to try not to repeat our previous sins. Let’s make the world as perfect as children, for children.
Gunduz Aghayev altered iconic photos. He drew the little victims of tragedies in a way he would have liked to see them.
