The topic i chose to tackle was police brutality, in particular, the Black Lives Matter Movement. This movement stems from decades of institutionalised racism and white supremacy, it seeks to end the inequality that hinders our societies. BLM is often seen as exclusive to one race, but in reality, it represents all who are treated or have been treated unequally. Street art was my method of visual activism, i wanted to use a medium which encompasses all classes. The angel represents innocence and death, while the bullseye clearly communicates “target”. White and black representing races, and red representing the blood shed. After all, we all bleed the same colour.
