Foreword Luba Lukova Once I had an argument with an artist friend whom I deeply respect. As artists often do, we argued about the importance of art in real life. At one point my friend uttered with a sigh, “Art can not change the world.” He said it without cynicism but with certainty, and this ended our conversation. Still, for me the debate continued. I could not understand how someone with his talent could reach such a conviction. I kept asking myself if he was really right and if one day I would share the same belief. Well, it is easy to get discouraged about the meaning of our work when we see that abuse and injustice continue despite the creation of so much powerful art. Does art really change anything? I do believe so. I think art changes the world the way drops of water transform the surface of a rock, slowly but surely. It is impossible for art to fix a declining economy or stop all wars, but art changes the way people see and understand reality. And if as artists we often lose faith in the impact of our work, those in power are quite aware of it. If art were so innocent and benign, there wouldn’t be censorship in this world. If art were so unimportant, would Popes and dictators depend so much on it? The 53 posters included in this calendar want to make a difference. Created by artists from diverse parts of the globe, these images speak a universal visual language. There is compassion, anger, humor, and intelligence in these posters, and they express it all with almost no words. This is the greatest power of the poster medium: to grab the viewer’s attention and in seconds to translate a complex idea into a simple message. In today’s digital era so much culture comes to us through a computer screen. We are drowned in email blasts and web pages and it seems that poster art has lost its importance as a communicative tool. But posters live in theaters and clubs and political rallies, places where real people meet other real people. And I believe we need that human connection even more now that we’re in such a virtual world. Critics often do not qualify posters as high art. While this is actually a good subject for another argument, art is not a definition, it is an experience. If the posters in this collection move you and make you think, then it doesn’t matter how a critic would label them. They are art with a capital “A,” art that is able to spark change.

Contributors

Q:

We asked the contributing artists to the 2010 Peace Calendar, who generously donated the use of their work, to answer the question:

Why do you create art on social themes?

Ronald J Cala II, USA www.i2iart.com/Cala

A:

Ronald J Cala II received his MFA in graphic and interactive design from Tyler School of Art, Temple University. He is currently the art director at CMYK magazine as well as being the founder and principal of Calagraphic Design and co-founder of Somewhat Awesome Design and Shy Girl Design.

I think we are responsible to use our gifts to leave the world a little better than we’ve received it.

Fang Chen, China fzc2@psu.edu

A:

Fang Chen was born in China, where he completed his BS and MFA in graphic design. Currently Chen is a member of the graphic design faculty at Pennsylvania State University. He has had laureate solo exhibitions at the Festival d’Affiches de Chaumont, the Colorado Poster Biennial, and the Trnava Poster Triennial.

I hope my posters will bring broad awareness of related social issues so as to make a better world.

Lex Drewinski, Germany DrewinskiLex@aol.com

A:

Lex Drewinski was born and raised in Poland. He graduated with honors from Waldemar Swierzy’s poster art class at the State Academy of Fine Arts in Poznan. He worked as a director and scriptwriter at the Animated Film Studio in Poznan before leaving Poland for West Berlin in 1985. Since 1992 he has been a professor of graphic design at the University of Applied Sciences in Potsdam, Germany, and in 2008 was awarded a doctorate of fine arts. His work is exhibited around the globe and has garnered countless international recognitions.

Winston Churchill once said “If you’re not interested in politics you can be sure, someday, politics will be interested in you.” It’s amazing how little our voices are heard concerning how our government acts on our behalf–what little influence we are able to exert on it. I always try to at least draw attention to this in my posters.


Felipe Galindo (Feggo), Mexico/USA www.feggo.com

A:

Originally from Mexico, Felipe Galindo is a prize-winning illustrator, cartoonist, and independent animator who resides in New York City. His drawings have appeared in The New Yorker, The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, and Reader’s Digest. He is the creator of the humorous Manhatitlan Codex, where he mixes Mexican images with American icons.

I believe visual art can contribute to the discussion on social issues.

Aleksandra Nina Knezevic, Bosnia & Herzegovina www.ninadesign.co.ba

A:

Aleksandra Nina Knezevic was born in Sarajevo and graduated from the Academy of Art in Cetinje, Montenegro. Her projects have been awarded in design festivals in Bosnia, Slovenia, the U.S., and Japan. Since 2006, she is the president of the Bosnian Association of Applied Artists and Designers.

Art=Act!

Cedomir Kostovic, USA www.cedoposter.com

A:

Cedomir Kostovic was born in Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina, and graduated from the Sarajevo Academy of Fine Arts. Since 1992 he has been teaching graphic design and illustration at Missouri State University, where he is currently a professor. Since 1980 he has exhibited at most major poster events in Europe, Asia, and the U.S. His posters have been awarded with over a hundred national and international prizes and are included in collections worldwide.

I have a desperate need to visually comment on things around me that affect me personally and share that with my audience.

Milán Kopasz, Hungary www.milankopasz.blogspot.com

A:

Milán Kopasz is a Budapest based artist and graphic designer. He finished his studies at KREA Contemporary Art School in 2009. He has had two personal exhibitions and participated in several art contests. Currently he is studying animation at Moholy-Nagy University of Art And Design.

I want to show a different aspect of social issues.

Peter Kuper, USA www.peterkuper.com

In 1979 Peter Kuper co-founded the political zine World War 3 Illustrated. His illustrations and comics have appeared in Time, The New York Times, and MAD, where he has illustrated SPY vs. SPY every month since 1997. He has written and illustrated over 20 books, most recently Diario de Oaxaca, a sketchbook journal of two years in Mexico.


A:

These images were created during the Dark Ages, that is to say, during the Bush administration. This art was my best effort to shead some empowering light and reflect the hope that someday we might move beyond that dreadful period in our history.

Yossi Lemel, Israel www.lemel.co.il

A:

Yossi Lemel is an award-winning political poster artist, creative director, and teacher at the Bezalel Academy in Jerusalem. His clients include Greenpeace Mediterranean, the Israeli Green Party, Amnesty International, and the Museum for Islamic Arts. His posters are exhibited around the world and are in the permanent collections of the Victoria and Albert Museum, London; the Palais du Louvre, Paris; and the National Museum in Poznan, Poland.

I guess I create social art first of all because both of my parents were victims of the Holocaust. I’ve developed sensitivities to human rights, justice, and the need to fight for a better world.

Luba Lukova, USA www.clayandgold.com

A:

Luba Lukova is an artist and designer based in New York. Her art has been featured in Time, The New York Times, and The Nation. Her posters are exibited internationally and are in the permanent collections of MoMA, New York, and the Library of Congress. Publisher Clay & Gold recently released her critically acclaimed Social Justice portfolio. The Health Coverage poster, included in the collection, was in a prestigious exhibit at the inauguration of President Barack Obama in Washington, DC.

I keep my eyes, ears and most important my heart open to what is happening around us and then I express what I feel...

McRay Magleby, USA Phone: (801) 375-2105

A:

McRay Magleby, formerly creative director for Brigham Young University Publications & Graphics, is now a professor emeritus of graphic design at the University of Utah and manages his own studio, Magleby and Company, located at his home in Provo, Utah.

I create art on social themes because I believe in the lasting power of their message–plus these types of projects are the most exciting.


Chaz Maviyane-Davies, Zimbabwe www.maviyane.com

A:

For more than two decades Chaz Maviyane-Davies’ award-winning work has taken on issues of consumerism, health, nutrition, social responsibility, the environment, and human rights. He has studied (MA, the Central School of Art and Design in London) and worked in Britain, Japan, Malaysia, the U.S. and Zimbabwe. Due to adverse political conditions in his homeland, Maviyane-Davies moved to the U.S., in 2001, where he is currently a professor of design at the Massachusetts College of Art in Boston. His work has been exhibited and published extensively and is included in several permanent collections.

From my point of view, design is a weapon, and if it can be used to sell jeans and perfume, then it can be used to fight for more just democracies and political wisdom. It can also fight for health and the environment, and hopefully a more tolerant, peaceful world.

Frank Norton, USA www.fbnorton.com

A:

Frank Norton is a designer currently living in Springfield, MO. His chief interests blossom from storytelling and picture-making along with an inherent curiosity for history, art, and nature. Frank will earn his BFA in graphic design and illustration from Missouri State University in 2010.

The complex fabric of society connects us all and I believe the best way to reach an understanding of peace and respect is through sincere and open communication.

Scorsone/Drueding, USA www.sdposters.com

A:

Joe Scorsone and Alice Drueding have been designing posters together since 1986. They are also faculty members in the Graphic & Interactive Design program at Tyler School of Art of Temple University. Their work has appeared in many international publications and exhibitions, has received numerous awards, and is in permanent collections around the world.

The goal of our work is to capture the essence of an issue–war, terrorism, hunger, natural disaster, ethnic violence, etc.–in memorable visual form so that the viewer is unable to resist the call to reflection and possible action.


István Szugyiczky, Hungary www.szugyiczky.com

A:

István Szugyiczky is a Hungarian graphic designer currently working as a freelance designer in Barcelona. Having graduated in graphic design at the Hungarian Academy of Fine Arts in 2001, he has since then participated in many environmental and social poster projects and has been featured in many exhibitions all around the world. Besides poster design he is interested in illustrated typography, lettering, and illustration.

I’ve always been revolted by injustice and hypocrisy in the world and I just have to act against them by my own means.

Parisa Tashakori, Iran www.parisatashakori.com

A:

Parisa Tashakori is an art director, designer, and illustrator based in Tehran. She holds an MA in Graphic Design from Azad University of Tehran, where she currently teaches. She has exhibited her posters worldwide. Parisa has been a juror at several Iranian and international design competitions and has won numerous design awards.

I’m a woman and a mother. I’d love for all people, especially children, to live in peace, far from any violence on our main mother Earth. In Iran, policy makers and authorities get little help from graphic designers to express and resolve social issues; spending money in this area is considered an extra expenditure. My language is graphic design and I prefer working on human rights and environmental subjects even if I can not find any client for that.
