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 Press
