“Start making. Start being the change you want to see in this world.” De NicholsFrom the psychedelic typography used in ‘Make Love Not War’ posters of the 60s, to the solitary raised fist, take a long, hard look at some of the most memorable and striking protest artwork from across the world and throughout history. With an emphasis on design, analyse each artwork to understand how colour, symbolism, technique, typography and much more play an important role in communication, and learn about some of the most influential historical movements.
Tips and activities are also included to get you started on making some of your own protest art. Guided by activist, lecturer and speaker De Nichol’s powerful own narrative and stunningly illustrated by a collaboration of young artists from around the world, including Diana Dagadita, Olivia Twist, Molly Mendoza, Raul Oprea and Diego Becas, Art of Protest is as inspiring as it is empowering.
