County: West Midlands
Year: Year 13
Inspiration: My parents grew up throughout the 1980’s and have told me about how the Thatcher revolution changed and shaped their lives and how it caused them to lose faith in politics. The artist Shepard Fairey is known for his strong political views on past and current events. His use of colour and presentation has helped me to create my own style throughout the creation of my image.
Title: Notice the Difference
Description: The image shows two Conservative leaders, “Thatcher” and “Cameron”: both strong powerful political figures who tailored their own political revolutions that gave the people of the UK mass unemployment, cuts, debt and a deep social crisis within our society. Known for their widespread economic reforms, they have created a mirror image of then and now. Issues from the 1980s still continue to the present day. Times have changed but our political system hasn’t, with history repeating itself over and over again. As many people know politics in the 1980s were a low point for the UK, but we now need to move forward and change the way we do things.
