This is an A1 poster drawn with ink and technical pens.
It was created for a cultural event that Dr Gestsson and I took part in. The phrase “Elite Art For The Masses” is courtesy of Dr Gestsson. It was inspired by the rejection of a previous project deemed “too elitist”.
As you can see, it is a cartoon style parody of a propaganda poster. All the characters looking in the same direction, but instead of expressions of awe, each individual has its own reaction to this “elite art”. It allowed me to work on those cartoon character expressions.
This project was also an opportunity for me to represent what my concept of art is: a piece of work which generates a strong emotion in the viewer. The nature of the emotion falls totally out of the hands of the artist.
