76,332/5.5million



The political, social and economic chaos of my country has led to a migration crisis.

Over 5.5 million Venezuelans are currently displaced with little plans of going home.

Over 5.5 million people have had to pack a bag that would “prepare” them for a new life.

5mbags is a life-long project of drawing 5.5million bags.

One bag per Venezuelan migrant.

The number is subject to change. It can either increase or decrease depending on the circumstances of the country and the amount of people that leave or, hopefully, return home.
