The New Propaganda, vol. 1

I’ve always been fascinated by propaganda — both the historical images created by artists in the 20s, 30s, and 40s to the more modern work of artists like Shepard Fairey. Regardless of when in history it appears, using art to to further political causes and ideologies can be incredibly powerful when it works. In this series, I am trying to continue that tradition and use elements of propaganda — dramatic imagery, saturate colors, and bold typography — to explore graphic design, color, and composition, while also trying to communicate larger messages and ideas.
