FILE UNDER: more, RED & BLACK.
FILE UNDER: more, SOVIET PROPAGANDA INSPIRED POSTER – ART.
Soviet propaganda poster art: seems to say something about . . . winning.
wanting to win. having won. go for it. fight.
the piece below by HUBERT DOBLER seems to say, all that, everything all at once.
very clean lines. red and black.
no words. you get a sense of .. ‘versus’. strength in the face of stubborn not-knowing.
us against .. them.
the singular, the ‘one’ vs the many.
the desire to win.
winning. and, also: there’s no winning, i.e. it’s head-on dysfunctional.
damn, talk about / communication.
WIN / WIN.
(reminds me of JACK GOLDSTEIN, too. the KNIFE VIDEO, scroll down.)

YES, we are talking about . . SOVIET PROPAGANDA INSPIRED POSTER ART, this summer, or what.
they’ve even got another POP-UP ‘take’ – on their website, in case you missed it.
of course it was, SHEPARD FAIREY . . who pretty much single-handedly brought SOVIET PROPAGANDA STYLE ART to LIFE again. in the past decade. in the beginning of the new millennium . . . just saying.
what, something about life, as an artist .. in the USA .. ?
struggle, is it ?!!
or is it just, SUPERB communication … in a world of mass communication ?
