HIV AIDS project

‘Those who are infected are still beautiful’ says Fillemon Amalovu describing his painting ‘Immortality’ – the rose.
This image gallery shows just a few of paintings created for an HIV AIDS awareness project initiated by the
Ministry of Health & Social Services, the Ministry of Basic Education, the European Commission and the Katutura
Community Arts Centre.
The catalogue ‘Art breaking the silence’ features the history of the project, images of the paintings as well as the
artists and their personal statements for each work.
