The Whistle Blower (preparatory sketch) - Artista Eli - 2011

I am considering turning this sketch into a painting. The inspiration for this sketch are the countless ‘Whistle Blowers’ who bring to light important issues, but at the same time sacrifice their own well being in order to do so. I hope I have captured the the horrific consequences that these altruistic acts create for the whistle blowers of the world. When they act for the good of the rest of us, they put their jobs, their mental health and sometimes even their lives on the line for us. We all owe them a huge amount of gratitude for attempting to tackle corruption within our world. I would like to say a huge thank you to all those people who are willing to do such an honourable thing.
