For the last Poster Monday spot of April we have a poster coming from England designed by Stuart Farr who has a degree in graphic design, specializing in editorial design. Stuart is currently working in the north west of England.
“The piece is called “Lillie for Self Ownership” and was inspired by the environment of social justice, government overreach, and the problems of digital privacy. I designed her to be an expression of rebellion in a world increasingly concerned with each other’s behavior.
The artistic motive was to capture the spirit of youthful rebellion with as much style and brazen sass as I could stomach. To signal irreverence in the face of authority, Lillie is savoring a lollypop. To demonstrate commitment, she cut Anarchy into her face. These juxtapositions are powerful tricks when designing art. In the graphic tradition of Rosie the Riveter or Jim Fitzpatrick’s Che Guevara I would hope ‘Lillie’ becomes synonymous with a new kind of liberation away from the tyranny of the deep state, the nanny government and the postmodern communists who volunteer to police their fellow human. You can read more about these ideas in a short essay on my website” says Stuart.
A bold and interesting composition. Congratulations for your work Stuart Farr. To see more about Stuart works visit his website page.
