Bears AIDS red ribbon
Translation of lettering: There's something I want to tell you. For correct knowledge of AIDS. For an era where we live together. From person to person, from adult to child. The artist, Iwazaki ... (?) was infected with HIV through the use of blood products to treat haemophilia, and died in 1993 at the age of 19. He had dreamt of becoming an artist since he was young, and continued to paint throughout his battle against illness. This is one of those pieces painted in 1991 - Toshi's passion. World AIDS Day 1/12 - The red ribbon is a symbol of support and understanding of the suffering of those with HIV/AIDS. For the future of our children! Let's think about AIDS now. Children living in a world with AIDS.
