Imagine: If Children Had The Childhood They Deserved

Having created popular series of illustrations like “Holy Selfie,” “World Leader“, “Global Police” and “Just Leaders,” painter Gunduz Aghayev is back with a new work called “Imagine.”

This time, the illustrations are about children. The painter condemns those who want to make children part of their dirty play. Children are innocent and we have to give our all for their future. We have to try not to repeat our previous sins. Let’s make the world as perfect as children, for children.

Gunduz Aghayev altered iconic photos. He drew the little victims of tragedies in a way he would have liked to see them.

Bad call Bored Panda. If I was involved in any of these awful situations I wouldn't appreciate my experience being reimagined with a rosy sentiment such as this. They are powerful images that should be left as they are, as a reminder ( and a wake up call) of the horrific cost of war and the inequity that exists. I understand the artists intentions, but ultimately I don't really think it's helpful or insightful, just wishful thinking ....

Does it not make you grateful for the life you have lead?

I'm shocked... How can you trivialise such iconic images of suffering? This is disgusting.

Better try to understand why the new images are so powerful. They show you how the reality could have been, if... These peaces of art are amazing!
