Violence is not Beautiful


Anastasiia Kryzhanovska

Violence is not Beautiful represents the damage of our society through violent social media propaganda, especially from the music industry. Violence has become trendy for the younger generations, as the use of weapons in music videos has increased dramatically. This acts as an inspiration for young rebels that want to express personas and look cool, or just succumb to peer pressure.

Anastasiia recreates these scenes in her project, with an accent on how comical these people appear, and how much damage they can cause to society. Using weapons is not an act of being strong it is an act of being weak. This project aims to raise awareness on this topic, to remind people that violence not only causes physical pain, it also ruins families and breaks hearts.
