SOCIAL & POLITICALLY ENGAGED ART
is a national juried show focused on socially engaged and politically motivated art. Progressive art has been integral in the development of contemporary art.

Recent social, political, and economic uncertainty has encouraged the production of works that are not meant for mere market commodity but rather these works serve as avenues or agents for societal transformation.

My artist statement

Growing up in a communist country, I have always seen graffiti as a selfless expression of creative and passionate people. People who are willing to put their time, talents, and often risk prosecution in the name of art or truth.  In a country where you could not trust any media outlets, the truth was spray painted on the street walls.

Even thought this piece was created based on my personal experience and my country is free now I know that often the only truth is still being spray painted daily on many walls all over the world, bringing hope, encouragement or awareness.
