The Daniele Buetti 'Oh Boy Oh Boy' series is centered around insoluble conflicts, war and terror. The artist uses shots from the prisons of Abu Ghraib and Guantánamo. The media constantly plagues society with these images, and the artist wanted to find a way to capture its essence, but in a way that isn’t as horrifying.

He layered different elements on top of each other to create a mosaic. At first glance, it appears as if it is just a regular painting, but below the surface is a much deeper and serious message.

These cultural snapshots are a reflection of today's times, and a reminder of the struggles that many in the world are facing. Artists such as Buetti who can convey strong messages through their works are able to build connections with their audience.
