Spanish visual artist Jofre Oliveras utilizes a spectrum of mediums to create his murals, sculptures and installations. For Jofre, art is a tool that highlights the need for change at both an individual and a societal level. His work uses satire to critique problematic social convictions through sculptural and conceptual interventions, alongside his own meticulously executed murals in public space.
Here we see Oliveras take a direct shot at both the art establishment and the media coverage of the ongoing migrant crisis. He comments directly on a recurring theme seen at Art Biennales across the globe – the parading of migrant ships as a visual narrative, and the passivity of the observer.
