About the painting “Dark Bazaar” The intense and sensitive painting "Dark Bazaar" portrays the appalling plight of women trafficking for sexual exploitation and slavery in dark bazaars across the world. Greed, money and mistreatment lurk in sordid places but also in modern-day societies where faceless pillars of the community are often the menacing dark forces of abuse. Viewing the artwork lets the mind drift into a surreal dark setting that triggers inquisitiveness and an awful awareness that touches the inner senses of humanity.
