In this artwork, made on the italian "pedestrian path" signal, AJ Roi, through its pictorial intervention, transforms the unexpressive little man on a blue background into a corpse thrown at the bottom of the sea.

 

By adding a few elements, AJ was able to change the meaning of this true road sign, depicting -with the simplicity typical of its expressive language- a macabre scene but with bright and cheerful colors.  


In this piece -part of the the series of artworks Aj Roi  use to constructively give vent to his violent side - we can observe a concrete block that, attached to a rope, linked to the victim's foot, keeps it anchored to the seabed. The "X" instead of the eyes, and the red point (which symbolizes a bullet hole in the front) leave no doubt that the subject is no longer alive.
