Piece description from the artist
Sometimes you gotta be strong and FIGHT for peace. The most powerful weapon to fight injustice is the focus of your mind, and your drive to keep making things better, even from a bleak place. This fierce red figure represents the colorful inner warrior in each of us, energetically fighting his way through the darkness around him, kicking and punching out black shadows that want to limit us, and ever reaching towards the light of hope and truth.
