Gas Maske Stencil Collage on Canvas by Shepard Fairey

For one of my class assignments, I have to find something that relates art (because it is the main focus of my whole blog,) to something else that I am learning in one of my other classes. I decided to tie art to propaganda posters that we make in History. This photo by Obey Giant is a wonderful piece of art. I decided to choose this photo for my “school related” post because of the art that Obey Giant does. It is a very well done piece that can represent propaganda posters. I think that this can be a good topic because of how well this artist can make all different kinds of these amazing  paintings without a fail. Freedom-of-the-press-print_no_apWEB-500x719Another good example of how to tie art with history is this painting of a printer  by Shepard Fairey. This photo is one of the many paintings that  Fairey had created. This particular piece includes the caption,”Freedom of the press is guaranteed to those who own one.” I think that this is a good example to use for history because of all of the other inventions that were being made at that point in time. I realize that this is a very boring topic for a post, and I’m sure that no one in their right mind would read thins all the way through, but if you have gotten this far in reading this awful post thank you
