The hand oiler

“One of the aims of Art – states Lucio Perna, creator of this work – is to identify and denounce the limits and vices of our society. For this purpose, the artist may choose to use a sarcastic, surreal language, but whatever the means, the message should be explicit, loud and clear. Corruption is a purulent wound that slowly erodes Democracy”.
