Liz McQuiston‘s new book ‘Visual Impact – Creative Dissent in the 21th Century’, is out now. It is a richly illustrated exploration on art and design driving major social and political change in the 21st century.
Loads of events, such as Arab Spring, Occupy Wall Street, etc., plus social issues like poverty, equality, gun-control and more, have given rise to what is known as ‘activist’ or ‘protest’ art.
Visual Impact highlights the extraordinary power of art and graphic design to affect social and political change. Generously illustrated with over 400 images, this is a visual guide to the most influential and highly politicized imagery of the digital age. Read more about the book
