Maria llena eres de gracia by QuilesART Maria llena eres de gracia by QuilesART
I get the idea for this drawing speaking with a good friend from Colombia. I think in rich countries from Europe we look to countries like Colombia, countries with a big problem with drugs traffic like "this is not our problem". Well, they maybe make drugs but we buy that, so we are a big part of this problem

I always think something like this everytime i hear someone saying: "those damn (insert your favorite stereotype here), their drugs are poisoning our kids"... Well, educate your children so they dont use drugs, be a good parent. It doesnt matter how much drugs are at their reach, if they dont want to consume them they will not.

I agree!  If we wouldn't buy it then the "supply and demand" would change; decrease!  Outstanding drawing!

Um... No, but by judging the "content" of your "art" it seems that you snort that.

Neither the producers nor consumers of drugs are the problem, it's this ongoing drug war that was started by the Nixon administration, which become worse in the Reagan administration, that has lead to the deaths of thousands of people! If we want to end this nightmare, then we need stop criminalizing people that do drugs!

While I like the fact that Jeff Sessions is putting pedophiles behind bars, I don't like views on Marijuana legalization. He wants to go even harder on the people that use the stuff, that's really asinine!

This is a common existential problem.
Which came first? The chicken or the eggs?

Because people think too much about the past, they don't think well about the problem. When they start thinking well about the problem, they find it as being a lot more complicated than criticizing the past... So they criticize the past to make others think they did their job at fixing the problem...

...and by the end, the problem isn't solved and left alone.

Are you sure there is a problem in "this problem"? 

Drugs are part of human live since there is humans to live. So probably if the use of drugs were a undesirable thing it would not be a problem but a tragic aspect of human existence.

Fight drug international commerce gave rich countries the common enemy they much needed to replace communism_ which had became old news. Money in this industry was never as relevant to Worlds economy as imagination makes it, but drug-lords are sure useful to keep the international commerce of weapons predictable and stable in it's demand. Plus, being a crime drugs provide a cute layer of differentiation between rich people (who can pay cops to look other way wen they want use illegal substances) and poor people (who can't) in same geographic context. Also: drugs fantasized as omnipotente gave a great excuse for people how lived mediocre lives, because by definition that is all most can do, but prefer if possible keep the illusion they had great_ genial!_ hided potential; they may thing "If was not for the drug I would have been this, and done that..., I lost my live and humanity itself should feel sorry for that".          

Seems a "everybody wins" situation.

well, my mistake. Thought it was allusion, it looked like picture was lightly faded with addition of yellow tint, what actually converted russian white to Columbian yellow. Why? Because of the hands behind back, head cover slightly remind me the element of traditional islamic clothes and especially political situation. But it is still not obvious.

I am colombian, I admire your braveness to express what you think. but woman in my country don't wear hijabs ? Maybe I'm wrong in what is that on her face! but you know? cocaine and other drugs have become one of our lowest problems for the last years. still, not a good point in our favor :saddummy:

From the hijab, maybe you are mistaking Colombia for Afghanistan. However it is true that Afghan is the largest grower of opium.

I have never seen a Colombian Female with a...Hijab :? Hmm..
and I am half Colombian!

Wouldn't someone that Looks like that, Smuggle in Opium/Heroin
rather than Cocaine? 

Besides, the chemical Cocaine was isolated by a GERMAN chemist. :icongermanflagplz: :iconcocaineplz:
and Coca Leafs were chewed (NOT COCAINE) sorta like Coffee...to energize you and suppress your Appetite.

Well, It depends about which part of the story do you want to hear...I'm Colombian and if I agree with the message is because we have to have a look to the both sides of the situation....but I would like to invite you to get more information about the present of our country and how the drugs nowadays is just one issue more, there are many other countries that also make and sell them to others....then I think that use my flag for this purpose is just to make use of a cliche and a stereotype that I thought is not accordingly with the real situation.

kmylo clearly you do not see the picture or know anything about art. he is not referring as Muslim, when the cocaine is being produced the workers have to cover their face to inhale little or nothing of the chemicals.
i am Colombian and i thought this was very clever and cool way to sen a message.  keep up the good work!!!

Colombia is not a Muslim country, it looks strange.
And in the first place, they produce and export so much Cocaine because others buy it xD
First USA, Brazil and Mexico.

I don't see how they call your artwork pornographic when there are dozens of nearly-teens posting selfies of themselves half or full nude. Your art is provocative and has meaning, here's my two thumbs up!

I just discovered your gallery and you truly have a talent portraying these themes, which are sadly part of our current reality. Is the name a direct reference to the movie (which happens to address drug trafficking)? Please keep up the amazing work!
