The Living Wall
Artist Nikita Nomerz travels around cities of Russia, bringing back life to old abandoned buildings and objects by giving them eyes, noses, and various facial features.
Wall Street Nation by Sebastian Errazuriz
"I’m afraid greed is rapidly changing life as we know it; it’s become normal that while home owners are being evicted, banks considered ‘too big to fail’ are shamelessly gambling with citizens money. The 99% are intimidated by their own police force while judges rule that companies have the same rights as people. Now corporations are pouring unregulated amounts of money into Super PACs to influence the elections and secure politicians that will continue to de-regulate the market and make them more money. It’s all spiraling out of control; greed is taking over and people are loosing all sense of proportion and justice."
Amnesty International, in collaboration with the German street art collective Mentalgassi, and Wieden + Kennedy creative team Lisa Jelliffe and Kirsten Rutherford have produced a creative way to feature the faces of individuals whose human rights have been denied or abused. The work they created, which is not immediately visible and only appears from a certain angle, can be found across Wales, Ireland, Germany and Denmark.
The 6 individuals highlighted in this year’s work include Fatima Hussein Badi, who faces the death penalty in Yemen after an unfair trial, Jabbar Savalan, who is in prison in Azerbaijan for his peaceful anti-government activism (including comments he made on Facebook), and Natalia Estemirova, a Russian human rights activist whose murder has not been brought to justice.
