A Honduran artist who calls himself “the Urban Maeztro” uses art to encourage citizens to think about violence in his country. The 26-year-old former graphic designer wears a mask
in public and uses the streets of Tegucigalpa as his canvas. In this reproduction of Rene
Magritte’s Son of Man, the artist − who remains anonymous for security reasons − substitutes a
pink grenade for the apple blocking the face of a man in a bowler hat. Source: The Associated
