Sometimes Images Do What Words Cannot


Graphic by Damx Design Corp.


Welcome to the newly created Political Artwork blog. This is a non-profit, non-commercial progressive political art blog. This blog gallery will allow the free sharing of progressive/liberal artwork and ideas between the creators and the public. Many artists are producing excellent, timely artwork relating to the political emergency occurring in America today.

The Bush Administration’s activities have inspired liberal-thinking artists to produce insightful, sometimes hard-hitting work that documents the revolutionary political changes occurring in our country as they happen. This artwork needs to be seen by as many Americans as possible in order to save our Democracy from ruin.

This is free speech at its most basic and as long as we still enjoy that right, I will attempt to spread the progressive/liberal message far and wide using images, words, personal accounts, and stories as they are submitted to this site for inclusion.

Please respect the work of the artists you see here and be sure to credit them when you share their artwork with others.

Hello Emily,
Political Artwork needs more ways and places to be shared and I am excited about your new project, and wanted to share some political art of my own. One year ago, a gang of Bay Area artists created an event called SimNuke, and using fans and fossil fuels, they similated a nuclear fireball on the exact 60th anniversary of the Trinity test fire of the first atom bomb. Michael Williams offers his great images of this event on the website: http://flickr.com/photos/dantesfedora/sets/606332/
Near the end of the set of images is what our crew added to the otherwise very solemn event. Call it Political Art Comic Relief. We called it "Send Him To Mars" and we took an effigy of the resident/president that was chained by the neck to a bowling ball, which we fired out of a mortar that we call the Mity Max. Michael was standing in the right place at the right time to be able to share this otherwise private moment....
