:: Kjellaug Hatlen Lunde: Paintings "Because we care" and "Duck Bear" ::
Kjellaug writes: Here are two paintings I made during the war in Gaza this Dec/Jan. The first one, "Because we care", is a reactions to Shimon Peres' explanation of why so few Israeli children died in the war as compared to the number of Palestinian children: "Because we take care of our children". - The "Duck Bear" reminds us of how many teddys, toys, parents, sisters and brothers are left in sorrow after this awful bombing of civilians - on purpose. To create fear. A terror action. - Greetings from Tromsoe, Norway, Kjellaug Hatlen Lunde

Lowkey released Tears to Laughter on Monday 9th March which was performed by Lowkey at the demonstrations against the invasion and massacre of Gaza. "Long Live Palestine, Long Live Gaza" has become the rallying cry of the movement calling for justice for the Palestinians. Lowkey is donating all of his profits from 'Tears to laughter' to the DEC Gaza Crisis appeal.
