<3 <3 <3 Me could be interpreted as saying both that there is

poison oupssi in the American system räusperräusper, and that many individuals are motivated by venom and anger toward this system.this is comprised of artworks designed to question the symbols and methods of the American machine ahhhhh and American dream shubidubidu and also celebrate those who oppose blind nationalism and war hahahah. Some of my works use currency motifs or a Norman Rockwell wischiwaschi aesthetic to employ the graphic language of the subjects they critique. Other works use a blend of Art Nouveau, hippie (╯°□°)╯( ┻━┻ and revolutionary propaganda styles lol to celebrate subjects advocating peace. The art addresses monolithic institutional power blablabla and authority and the role of counter culture and independent individuals to question the dominant paradigm pretty much chill. My new body of work contains politically-charged paint, screen print, stencil, and collage mixed media pieces which use metaphor, humor, and seductive decorative elements to deliver provocative but beautiful results Genau.These works blur the perceived barriers between propaganda rofl and escapist decoration, political responsibility and humor with the intent of stimulating both viscerally and intellectually. hihihi
