Gil Vicente “Enemies” Exhibition
"Brazilian artist Gil Vicente ignited a massive controversy with his  recent exhibition titled “Enemies” at the Sao Paulo Art Biennial. A  series of charcoal works depict Vicente’s assassination of some of the  global community’s most influential members. Among those showcased were  George W. Bush, Pope Benedict XVI, former Israeli Prime Minister Ariel  Sharone, Brazilian President Luiz Inacio Lula de Solva, Iranian  President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and former UN Secretary General, Kofi  Annan. The artist had some powerful words to say regarding the meaning  and theme behind his work, “Because they kill so many other people, it  would be a favour to kill them, understand? Why don’t people in power  and in the elite die?”"
