Regrettably Africa is known for its child soldiers, a topic which has recently been brought to light by the campaign which aims to bring the worlds attention to Joseph Kony, leader of the rebel Lords Resistance Army in Central Africa, and make him answer to the war crimes and crimes against humanity he has committed.
One of which is the abduction of children who are then forced to become soldiers in the rebel army.Compare this to children in the UK who have the right to freedom and a good education but turn it down to play on their latest xbox game or sit on a park bench drinking cans of cider underage, and we can see the extent of how different British and African culture really is.
As with all my work this design carries a story. After the recent political problems in Sudan the Sudanese army have been continually bombing South Sudan, forcing the Nuban people to flee to the Nuba mountains. From here women have to walk for miles just to find food or water, for a Nuban woman her work is never done as it is a constant struggle to provide for her family. I wanted to contrast this with the popular culture in England where some people don't work hard/ at all a WAG seemed an appropriate image to use for this.
