Jo Frederiks' "Forketting the Right to Live" Displayed in Online Animal Rights Art Gallery

Austin, Texas - Artists & Activists for Animal Rights (AAAR), a leading online platform dedicated to animal welfare, is thrilled to announce the addition of acclaimed artist Jo Frederiks to their esteemed art gallery. Frederiks' captivating artwork titled "Forketting the Right to Live" shines a spotlight on the unjust treatment of animals in our society, particularly focusing on the plight of a piglet tragically displayed on the end of a fork. On factory farms, piglets are taken away from their mothers when they're less than a month old. In nature, they would stay with their mothers for several months. Piglets' tails are cut off, their teeth are often clipped in half, their ears are mutilated, and males' testicles may be cut off—all without any pain relief.

Jo Frederiks is an internationally recognized artist whose work passionately advocates for animal rights. With a deep-rooted commitment to creating awareness and inspiring change towards a vegan way of life, Frederiks utilizes her art as a powerful tool to expose the hidden suffering endured by animals who are enslaved, exploited, and needlessly used for food, clothing, entertainment, and research. Her artistic journey encompasses various mediums, with a particular affinity for graphite and oil paint. Frederiks' exquisite attention to detail captures the unique character of each individual being she portrays, evoking a sense of empathy and compassion in viewers.

Raised on a vast cattle station in central Queensland, Australia, Frederiks developed a profound connection with nonhuman animals from a young age. It was this upbringing that not only nurtured her bond with animals but also shed light on their profound vulnerability in the face of human actions.
