My art titled “Kim Jong UnF” was inspired by the art of Seymour Chwast. It is a political satire of the current leader of North Korea, Kim Jong Un, known for his international bullying tactics and befriending of the odd. I used Adobe Photoshop CS3. By Elijah Adams
For this assignment, students were to pick 3 graphic designers from a list I gave them and do research. After their research was done, students were to create an original piece of art inspired by one of the graphic designers they researched. Elijah mimicked how Seymour Chwast works for his assignment. I often encourage students to create art with a social or political issue so they are researching current and historical events. I have no political agenda; social and political issues make for good art making. Please do not take offense to this or any other political or social issue the students work with. Thank you.
