My research on a video project leads me to find a very touching and inspiring work of an artist. The message made a big impact and delved to my inner self. It teaches me how to value and appreciate life. It touched me with its sincerity of execution through his canvas. Obviously, there is social cancer that has been prevailing around us that we simply deny to ourselves that it exist and get blinded by the reality of it. We see all these kind of situations everywhere and immediate action is salient. But where do we start from here?
Through Joey Velasco's work, I saw the true picture of our society. The depressing sights that linger around and continue to cause grief and sorrows that is vividly defined as Poverty. It is precisely depicted on his obra, "The Last Supper" where it integrates social relevance by putting street children instead of apostles with Jesus. These children has a "colorful" stories of their own.
He made a difference by sharing his talents and come up with this video to share his work and social campaign. I am proud of his work so to speak. It is a successful "video virals" for any commercial site with same relevance and worth for commendation.
What is important , he had made his point and had delivered his message clearly and powerful. I just can't imagine, that such video campaign should come from an ordinary painter and not to our elected politicians who had so many promises for our country.
Joey Velasco used this medium to enlighten us. How I wish I could also do the same work similar to this video. Try to reflect, as you watch it 'coz if you do, you can understand your own value. Allow me to share his work through this blog.
