Eli wyatt speculative world

For this project I decided to do a mural of my speculative world. Materialism can allow for different topics of conversation to branch out, especially politics. I wanted to focus around that. Years ago minorities didn't have basic rights as they should've. The same situation can be applied to animals, they were considered property. Both minorities and animals can be viewed as or have properties of materialism. I wanted to show the synonymous life of a mother deer and young African American child. I wanted this mural to be open for the viewer's interpretation, I intended to show the child getting hurt but I figured that it would be too graphic for me to draw, too graphic to show so thats why I left a small section of the mural blank for the audience to imagine the ending scene. Maybe it's a happy ending...maybe it isn't.
