Propaganda Art: making a comeback (and a statement!)

interviews,  Barack Obama,  Indecision,  Indecision 2008,  Shepard Fairey, hope poster

Even Stephen Colbert used Propaganda Art to illustrate his report on the 2010 Vancouver Olympics, poster by Shepard Fairey. In his own words: “Shepard Fairey’s “Hope” poster belongs to everyone.”

Propaganda art by nature is bold, declarative, evocative, and inspiring. Think of Uncle Sam’s finger, Rosie the Riveter’s bicep, Stephen Colbert’s middle-distance stare – art can propagate an idea, cast an image, or stir an emotion, and when used correctly, create an icon.

We were inspired by the famous “Hope” poster created by Shepard Fairey for President Obama’s 2008 campaign, so we set out to create some statement art of our own. Propaganda Art Personalized propaganda statements

Use Propaganda Art Portraits to express Ideas or “Ideals” like Slim did

Some propaganda portraits have been about creating a new ideal (we like the confidence and optimism in “Slim”), some were about catching a memory in the act and preserving it in a timeless style (you can taste the summer in “Marvel”).

No matter the goal, every propaganda art piece we’ve made has been a declaration — an announcement of a character, of a goal, of a memory, of something to be to be proud of.

You can make your own statement!

We love making bold art with a sense of purpose and serious style. So go ahead — make a statement!
