"The refugees crisis is the topic of the hour. Newspapers write about it, people comment, Governments make decisions and even businesses are born based on this issue. The main reason why I decided to illustrate the crisis in this manner is the fact that, above all, there is a huge wave of anger towards these people. I wanted to show the harsh situation that they are in and the fact that they only come in those boats searching for a better life. They are in the middle of the sea just waiting for a helping hand." - Diana-Andreea Bahrin
I am a self-taught illustrator and photographer and for the past five years I have been constantly trying to improve my work, each day at a time. I love creating conceptual work, but I also believe that inspiration can come even from the strangest of places, so I never know what the next day might bring me in terms of design.
