“The Guardian,” a remarkable work from the Radiance Collection, is an oil on canvas measuring 4 x 48 x 72 inches, created in the year 2023.

This collection, housed in the United States and showcased at a solo exhibition at the House of Arts in Miami in 2023, stands as an artistic declaration against the abuse of women, specifically addressing the issue of female hyper-sexualization in social media.

More on this painting

It’s a truly potent theme that connects with human trafficking, a subject not often discussed, yet it represents a form of modern slavery.

The piece is unframed and is notable for its evocative nature and its ability to channel feminine energy, depicting women as blossoming goddesses in a play of light and golden hues.

With “The Guardian,” the artist not only celebrates the intrinsic strength of every woman but also invites a deeper contemplation on the role and image of women in contemporary society.

The Radiance Collection, and “The Guardian” in particular, brings attention to a burning and often overlooked issue: human trafficking. Through the powerful medium of oil on canvas, the artist seeks to denounce this despicable form of modern slavery.

The portrayal of female figures, bathed in golden shades and surrounded by halos of light, symbolizes resilience and inner strength opposing the commodification of the female body.

This work reflects not only a message of hope and rebirth for the victims but also serves as a call to action against current exploitative practices.

With this collection, the artist aims to awaken consciousness and foster social change, urging viewers to actively engage against human trafficking and all forms of abuse.
