Pop Artist Nathan Janes Urges Public to ‘Free Tibet’ with New Painting ‘Tragedy and Hope’

The painting, “Tragedy and Hope,” marks the bloody history of Tibet as it culture and people have been eradicated by the Chinese since 1950 but it also marks the artist and other activists’ hope that people will continue to cry out until justice is brought to the Tibetan people.

Janes says that he “realizes many people accept the world as it is presented to them and continuing struggles such as that of the Tibetan people are not often presented to the American public through mass media outlets.”

He hopes that through his painting he will spread awareness about the tragic situation in Tibet to those who view his art and encourage people to learn about world events in other ways besides the mass media.
