the new propaganda

The New Propaganda, vol. 1

I’ve always been fascinated by propaganda — both the historical images created by the artists of 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 further political causes and ideologies can be an incredibly powerful tool when it works. In this series, I am attempting 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.
