Famous British artist Slinkachu presented three new works as part of a charity project 20 Years of War Child … Slinkachu previously had to photograph tiny figures of people - but now this is not just a joke: the heroes of his new works are defenseless children who have fallen into the heat of war.
20 Years of War Child - a special art exhibition timed to coincide with the twentieth anniversary of the charitable mission, which deals with the problems of protecting children living in areas where hostilities are taking place. Slinkachu's works are executed in his trademark playful style, but they do not overstep the bounds of what is permissible: the topic does not become less painful just because the tent of doctors here is represented by a banana skin, and the tank is an ordinary grape snail.

The reason for the refusal to demonstrate a work of art could have been simply a truthful depiction of events or, on the contrary, an extraordinary interpretation of them. Sometimes it is difficult to believe that real masterpieces of fine art fell under the censorship

To carry out The Truth Told Project, Sarah Fretwell traveled to the Democratic Republic of the Congo and photographed women and girls who were innocent victims of the civil war there.
