Lone figures appear standing wrapped in silver and gold blankets against moody grey skies while exhausted faces, framed by their life jackets, look pleading out from the canvas. These exquisitely detailed, poignant paintings are the work of Ethiopian artist Tewodros Hagos, inspired by contemporary journalistic imagery and footage of the ongoing migrant crisis. Entitled The Desperate Journey, the artist’s solo exhibition at Kristin Hjellegjerde’s Wandsworth space in London explores issues of voyeurism and othering in the face of human tragedy.
