As part of a recently concluded yearlong stay in Liberia, artist François Beaurain created “Monrovia Animated,” a series of whimsical animated GIFs depicting life in the capital of Monrovia. According to Beaurain, the series allowed him to connect with Liberians (most of whom did not have Internet connections and were unfamiliar with GIFs). He also presents the animations as lively, humorous alternatives to negative media images of Liberia.
