The worst part of the war

child-soldier by derrick colter

Hello Art,
people today I wil describe a Derrick Colter drawing.
I don’t have enough information regarding the artist but as you you can see through his work,
he’s african oriented more precisely he is expressing through his painting and drawings remind us the era of pharaoh, the glorious period of Africa. Child soldier gives us a good picture of the atrocity of war when it involves the children our future.
The drawing allows us to see how death alive those child soldiers become. This little boy has black rings under his eyes which are completely dark without any light of hope. He is wearing a helmet bigger than his head which outlines the dark effect on his face.
When we look at that kid the first feeling we have his sadness we want to help him he seems to be lost and we want to rescue him but he’s holding a gun. That gets us down the cruel reality he is a killer and he can take our life. On the background there is something which reminds us pharaoh symbols.
But we are called to help this kid. As to me this drawing is like our beloved continent Africa.
The reality is so cruel but we need to commit ourselves to make sure that the continent will be a good place to live in those coming years.
