Pissed Modernism is a visual art exhibition that aims to promote engagement in local activism and politics. Artists display work that comments on the world around them; from socio-political issues to lolcats to, well, whatever pisses them off.
As one of the leading artists, I was asked to create a typographic mural within the exhibition space based at The Patriothall Gallery in Edinburgh.
'Triumph ≠ Trump' is based upon the potential success and triumph that the United States and the world for that matter should be celebrating about when a new President is elected. Unfortunately with today's climate and political issues worldwide, judgement calls have been quite diluted and the United States have ended up with 'Trump' and not a 'Triumph' which they should be celebrating about.
The design was first created in digital format and then hand painted on to wall.
