I have been inspired by the work of L’Atelier Populaire de Paris, an artists collective formed of students in France in the 1960s who protested against the social injustices of the French state, and their quick, artful turn around of prints which engage the viewer through simple imagery and resonating slogans. I am interested in the focus on text by using it as the primary aspect of the image, drawing the viewer in with quick, powerful phrases and bold typography. In my own work I am interested in the using text as the ultimate focus of my print, then using the image to highlight the dark wit of the subject matter which exposes the injustices and inaccuracies of the modern day.
