It is said that “all art is political.” Throughout our history, art has become a venue of people to communicate ideas including political thoughts. Today, there are lots of issues confronting our society such as government reforms, elections, gender and equality, peace and order, and a lot more.
By juxtaposing magazine covers and classical artworks, I was able to express my feeling about various political and social issues without being overtly biased. It really helped me release my frustrations to the all the depressing news everyday. Through these digital collages, I was able to examine the dynamics of media, art, and history, and how these things are deeply connected to our political and social condition.
