School project S2: Propaganda

In art class we had to create a propaganda poster. I chose the global warming and the melting of the ice caps in the Arctic as the subject. The poster is in french, done with aquarelle, markers and indian ink. I played with the title “le Pôle Nord” (North Pole) and decided to go with “le pôle Mort” (Dead pole). The word play works in french because the words rime. In the middle of America, I wrote “Tu es coupable” (you’re responsible/guilty), with the emphasis on the “TU” (you) which address the reader directly for more impact. The main part of the poster is the cracked North Pole in the form of a skull, and the blood splashing behind and dripping on America. You get the message.
