If you think this is going to be another boring day, think again!
A 19-year-old Lithuanian artist just did the most cool protest to ever happen. Jolita Vaitkutė created a portrait of Vladimir Putin, only to see it get eaten by hungry chickens. Vaitkute definitely did not chickened out -pun obviously intended, when it came to satirizing one of the most cruel rulers of the world, and with this performance, she opens a discussion on censorship and propaganda.
“This piece of art is about the triumph of a free mind. With dictators being replaced, takeovers and revolutions taking place everyday, the masses are growing and more conscious societies are being born. And everyone of us is on a way to the new conscious society,” she explains.
