Unofficial War Artist

I will discuss my work on anti –war and human rights issues and discuss the medium of photomontage and collage with reference to John Heartfield, Hannah Hoch etc. I will outline the strategies and tactics of  how to make political art that doesn’t become sucked into the system but  remains a thorn in its side.

I work with photography, paint, photomontage and installation in the gallery and museum context as well as working on the street and making images for posters, badges, books, newspapers etc. The dissemination of the work is as important as its creation. I aim to make art that can be used as part of the struggle against profit before people
