Make It All Better

Nickolas Morgan's avatar Nickolas Morgan

This piece is my jib-jab on how society overlooks social issues right in our own back yard. Things like poverty, homelessness, and violence happen everyday in our own community, but we all seem more concerned with issues happening elsewhere. The bird spray-stenciled on the piece is a reference to the IFC show 'Portlandia' where putting a bird on things,' makes it all better'. This is a reference on how television, news, magazines/tabloids, and social media have numb'ed us to over look these issues right under our own noses. Also, the fact that it is done in a 'Street Art' style adds even more to the fact that these issues are overlooked.
