This piece is a painting exploring protest and the right to speak. The artist has used oil paint and smooth brush strokes to produce smooth blends which are easy on the eye. I will try and produce the same sort of effect with soft pastels when I come to do my final piece. The composition consists of several protestors in the fore group, and famous protestors' names in the background, backed by an a rican flag. This is a patriotic symbol and gives the art a propaganda feel.
