From the artist's website: "“It was time for a refresh at The Bell Pub located in Spitalfields in London. In light of the current events, I painted a striking photo taken by FutureHackney during the Black Lives Matter protests in London. A young man stares at the audience, he’s wearing a mask with the words ‘Racism is a virus’, while other protesters are in the background. I stand with the BLM movement and their fight for equality and justice.”" https://zabou.me/news/

Description
