The Untouchables by Erik Ravelo

Written by  Phoebe C.

Erik Ravelo is a Cuban sculptor, painter and multi media-artist. He is currently a creative director at Fabrica, the communications agency owned by the Benetton Group in Treviso, Italy. His campaigns for Benetton include "Unhate" which featured the controversial images of world leaders kissing. He was awarded the Grand Prix at Cannes in 2012 for this series. His other projects include Lana Sutra, The Unhate Dove and the Doping Thrower. From 2007-2011 he was the Creative Director of Colors Magazine. His work has been published internationally and exhibited around the world. He was born in Havana, Cuba in 1978 and studied art there at the Accademia Nacional de Bellas Artes San Alejandro. When he was 18 he escaped Cuba to Argentina to persue his dreams of working freely as an artist.

Los Intocables, or The Untouchables, is a photography project created by the Cuban photographer and artist, to raise awareness of the various attacks against children: sexual abuse, shootings in schools, trafficking, war, nuclear weapons, obesity are only a few examples. Children are shown bearing these threats as cross.
