Looking at PropagandaPosted: March 17, 2015
During a recent tutorial I was advised to look at propaganda I felt this was the right thing to do as propaganda posters in particular are often hiding an inner evil. This is one that I stumbled across.
This is a Nazi propaganda poster which is trying to discourage people from entering into any interracial relationship of any kind. The thing that attracted me to this image was the friendly nature of the image, it has nothing to do with what the German words say. I felt I could exploit this within my work. This was the painting that I produced below, again on A1 paper. I am not entirely happy with this piece, again I feel it is not the right image to work from in terms of normalising evil. I feel like I can’t determine this until the painting starts to take shape.
