The police attack on LGBTI+ picnic at Maçka Park during Pride Week was an attempt to spread hatred against love. I wanted to draw this moment which I witnessed and was not able to get over for a long time. Black clouds represent all types of violence including police. Even though black clouds are always there the existence of love disperses them. And the work tells that love will never turn into hate. My biggest wish is to help eradicate hatred or at least make people think about it.
