Name: Sarah-Bernarda Melcer
School: Lady Margaret School
Year: Year 13
Inspiration: Recently I have been inspired by political art and artists such as Banksy and especially Shepard Fairey, from whom I have taken a lot of inspiration. I concentrated on the current financial crisis (which is a subject that I am very ardent to portray) and decided to make my artwork in the form of street art too so that I could reach a larger audience.
Title: Propaganda Poster
Description: I have created a Propaganda Poster which tackles the subject of the financial crisis. The Humpty Dumpty represents the world economy as it collapses on the World Economic Forum. The image was inspired by political satire cartoons found in newspapers to add comedy to my work, as I think this will attract observers.
