The Elephant in the Room by MarcosMachina The Elephant in the Room by MarcosMachina
This is one drawing from a series I am doing for my drawing class. The drawings revolve around the ideas, myths and misconceptions society has towards street art/ graffiti.This one in particular portrays how our leaders and representatives
worry about money rather than dealing with the big elephant in the room. Small crimes, poverty and homelessness are just few of the issues that we face in the so called best country in the world. All these problems need to be dealt with but instead leaders, influential figures and the one per-centers choose to point fingers to small offenders such as graffiti artist as the blame of our situation. Is easier to put a target on a group of people than fix a situation that has no face.
