Alien to His Own

Muscles and mouth start all the madness. Heart and soul stop all the sadness.

Artist Statement

Propaganda posters have always been of great interest to me with their bold, brash and often audacious messages (coupled with their varied imagery). They recall a time when countries called upon every citizen, yet they discriminated so. Those peacefully opposed to their subsequent messages were alien – both in overseas lands and in their own. This image commemorates both those discriminated against by their fellow man, and those today who face a similar fate at the hands of those who discriminate against anyone who does not conform to their ideals, cliques and politics.
