Artists Around The World Respond To Devastating Attack On Nice

When words fail, art gives us space to grieve.

On July 14, a truck drove into a crowd of people celebrating Bastille Day in Nice, France, leaving at least 84 people dead and 50 others in critical condition. “Horror has again struck France,” French President Francois Hollande said in an address following the attack. 

As we struggle to make sense of the world we live in, where cruel and calculated acts of violence are becoming more and more commonplace, sometimes a simple image can express what language cannot.

Artists and cartoonists around the world are creating stunning images in solidarity with Nice. Their heartbreaking works speak in a tongue we can all understand, using the simplest means to express immense feelings of grief, disbelief and hope.
