Political protest poster designs - Graphic "Shouts"
When I open my internet browser, everyday I am greeted by a barrage of bleak news, each article screaming injustice. Sometimes these make me feel angry or upset about the state of the world, but what worries me more is not seeing anyone else expressing these emotions. Why are today's current issues not being addressed at the forefront of our culture? Where are the new bands damning these times with subversive lyrics? Which wall holds the latest artwork bleeding in paint and conveying outrage at the greed and deceit that plagues the present?!
And if these expressions are no longer relevant in today's society, then where are the hostile tweets or the raging status updates condemning the latest reports of greed, injustice and inequality? Or are these vessels of communication to blame for this stagnant silence? Is society just sitting on the fence?
These posters are a result of these thoughts.
