Exposures of the Next Generation

Artist Shepard Fairey uses modern day social issues to create pieces of art meant to remind others of the misfortunes happening around the world. Much like Fairey, I focused on today’s issues, such as the destructive influence that television has on children, as well as the effect that society has on people. This can be seen through my use of images of Disney characters holding weapons. My goal is to convey the negative effects that the media, war, and destruction can have on the future generation. This process has taught me patience and dedication so that I could produce beautiful pieces of art. My hope is that my artwork will influence others to make a change around them, and not ignore the obvious signs of destruction.
