Stolen Childhood by Henrique de Franca
Henrique de Franca lives and works in Sao Paulo, Brazil. De Franco has a first degree in Plastic Arts and a postgraduate in Graphical Design. His work has been exhibited throughout Brazil though he has been exposed also in the North East America, more specifically to Pennsylvania, Washington DC and Toronto. In this project he used pencil and charcoal to express some aspects of childhood, more specifically some aspects of his own childhood with respect of Catholicism in Latin America.
“This project is a collection of drawings I made throughout the last five years within the theme of memory. The subject, for me, automatically brings childhood to the centre of the series,” he explains about Stolen Childhood, “The series also discusses themes such as catholic upbringing in Latin America”. The result is impressive. Enjoy.
