Digital artist Anthony Azekwoh has a new artwork out, themed after the #EndSars campaign which has become widespread and spawned massive protests all over his native Nigeria and around the world. Named “No More”, the artist attached a note detailing the artworks inspiration.

The artwork features a young African woman with a raised fist, which has become a symbol of the anti-police brutality campaign that has also expanded into a revolt against Nigeria’s vastly corrupt political system, and institutionalized oppression that has bedeviled Africa’s most populous country for decades.

The young woman is carrying a backpack, her short frizzly hair bounded by a flowing red scarf which complements the bandana across her face as symbols of revolt. She holds a placard which says “the power of the people is greater than the people in power”. A full bright sun forms a Halo behind her head, signifying a bright new dawn of the nation’s youth. A pin on her backpack shows the iconography of a feminist coalition group that has become popular during the protests, earning them support  and verification by Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey.
