Comfort Women I

60"x36"

Comfort women were women and girls who were forced into sexual slavery by the Japanese Imperial Army before and during World War 2.

On December 28, 2015, Korea accepted $8.3 million dollars worth of reparations from Japan to create medical, nursing, and other services to surviving comfort women; women would most likely not receive any cash.

This piece is an homage to the Comfort Women statues that have been erected throughout the world. This piece is not pointed towards either government, but towards the Korean people.The duty of keeping the memory of what happened alive and of those who passed falls upon the Korean people. 잊지 마.

Medium - Spray paint, ink & acrylic
