Sex Trafficking Awareness
Sex Trafficking Awareness - This mural was completed by Joel Artista alongside students from the University of Dayton's Art Street Centre for the Sex Trafficking Awareness Project. This campaign aims to raise awareness of forced prostitution and the sexual exploitation of women and girls in the USA.
In this image expressions of sex trafficking are combined with an image of the Roman goddess Proserpina. In the mural, she struggles to break free from her captor, the god of the underworld, and her mother, whose hand reaches out for her.
