Artist ABOVE was invited to Zaragoza,
Spain, to paint at the 7th annual international art festival ASALTO.
This is the result: a 120 foot long wall painting titled 24% DESEMPLEADOS
(translation: 24% UNEMPLOYED)

Spain is the Eurozone’s 4th largest economy, however one in four
people in Spain are unemployed. In August 2012, Spain's unemployment
rate reached 24.4%, twice the euro-zone average. Even more shocking
is the unemployment rate for those under 25 years old, is a staggering
53%! As of September 2012 there are 4,600,000 people without jobs in

An unemployment rate of 24% or 25% puts a country about where the
U.S. was during the 1930s during the Great Depression. In September
2012 Spain breaks the world record and has the highest unemployment
anywhere in the world!

Thanks ABOVE!
