In his latest screen prints, graphic artist and designer Anthony Burrill has chosen to tackle far-right politics. Produced for the world’s leading anti-fascism organisation HOPE not hate against the backdrop of the rise of the populist far-right all over the world, the prints depict an optimistic message that things can get better.
“There’s so much happening in the world today to be concerned about, with the rise of the far right, Trump, and how divisive politics has become,” says Anthony. “I’ve made this print for HOPE not hate because I wanted to add my voice and make a positive statement. I think the phrase ‘Live With Hope’ is something that we should all strive to do in these difficult times.”
Created as an edition of 100, the screen prints will be available via HOPE not hate’s shop as part of their Christmas fundraising campaign. All funds raised from the sale of the prints will go towards HOPE not hate’s campaign to defeat the far-right.
The campaign has been organised by the progressive digital agency Blue State Digital, best known for their leadership role in Barack Obama’s presidential campaigns. They have worked with HOPE not hate for a decade to help them spread their message of optimism through digital campaigns.
