These images by Amsterdam-based artist Sit Haiiro have me in a trance. Stunning work. Couldn’t find much personal information on him besides:

After working as a digital creative for commercial companies, Sit decided to stop this madness in 2008 and went back to head and handcraft to slice away the fat. The following works were collected from his on going project called Haiiro. For further understanding of these illustrations, check out his description:

“Where the calm surroundings provide more opportunity for decision making, rather than being driven by the fast moving winds of change.”

Ahhh!

What people don’t understand is when we say “Teach men not to rape,” we’re not talking about telling them not to jump out of the bushes in a ski mask and grab the nearest female. We’re talking about the way we teach boys that masculinity is measured by power over others, and that they aren’t men unless they “get some.” We’re talking about teaching men (and women) that it’s not okay to laugh at jokes about rape and abuse. We’re talking about telling men that a lack of “No” doesn’t mean “Yes,” that if a woman is too drunk to consent they shouldn’t touch her, that dating someone - or even being married to someone - does not mean automatic consent. We’re talking about teaching boys to pay attention to the girl they’re with, and if she looks uncomfortable to stop and ask if she’s okay, because sometimes girls don’t know how to say stop in a situation like that. We’re talking about how women have the right to change their mind. Even if she’s been saying yes all night, if she says no, that’s it. It’s over. That’s what we mean when we say “Teach men not to rape.”

“His thoughtfulness is displayed in the elegance, boldness and fragility of his works. Some of the works bold and provocative, some are creative passionate portraits and some employ a nostalgic tenderness. All are engaging and reflect his insight.”
