More attempts at Agitprop using Gimp
Posts Tagged With: painting
I’m working on memes as agitprop. Agitprop was word to describe the work of Soviet Revolutionaries like Rodchenko and Tatlin. Their posters used yellow, red, and black to emblazon the Moscow streets with angular anger and stark imagery of class struggle.
I am humbly offering a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for students of abysmal aesthetics to hone their non-existent skills and cultivate their wretched taste. Learn to smash the grim Archons of professionalism with time-honored techniques of subterfuge as practiced by Dadaist, Surrealist, and Situationist non-artists.
Perhaps such a claim may sound presumptuous on my part, but I assure you–if you apply yourself with courage and fortitude, you too can become a master of bad art.
Here is one of my humble, artistic efforts from the toxic spectacle of the elections. One poor sap from a troll factory took of offense to my meme, saying I was disrespecting Russians who died fighting Hitler.
These are hollow words, as the factories–in their efforts to help Trump campaign–acted, in progressive guise, to help install a fascist regime in America.
