Mehbratu is a man on a mission. He is a refugee from Eritrea, and he knows that thousands of others like him dream about going to Europe. But he’s afraid they might not think through the risks of getting there.
So he’s painting what those risks look like. Mebrahtu started painting when he was young, because he saw his brother do it and he was impressed. Now, he tries to put those years of self-study to work to potentially save lives.
