Poverty is Modern

(click on the image to see it bigger, or just click on the last link of this post)

eBoy, the “geeky” artist behind the now famous pixelated parody images of world capitals, recently joined forces with Amnesty International, creating the above image for the  Poverty is Modern campaign.

Summing up the various problems the fight for human rights faces in the undeveloped countries in a single pixelated image is really a remarkable effort, specially when the artist in question is donating part of his profits from the selling of prints directly to the Amnesty International.

And this is no “for every print you buy you are donating 0,1€ for the institution” bullshit. eBoy is giving 4, yes FOUR, euros of each sold poster to the cause. 4€ in some cases can save lives.
So, if you have been thinking ’bout a new poster for your room, forget ’bout that Tupac and Bob Marley crappy posters (no disrespect, like them both lol), and buy something fresh while helping people truly in need.
