Our value of the Month of March is Respect
Raffaele Santalucia was born in 1975 in Pisa. From childhood he had a strong attraction to the artistic expressions of painting and music, which he always nurtured with passion and perseverance.
This mixed technique painting uses soft brush strokes along with collage to create this look of relaxation and calm. It shows an image of a woman who is made up of a variety of skin tones, hair colour and styles; depicting and mirroring our multicultural world. By doing this, Santalucia is encouraging us to be respectful and tolerant of each other whatever our culture or background.
Respect quotes & posters:
Give respect to earn respect.
Peace begins with tolerance and respect for everyone.
