‘Artists shouldn’t be political’ Pffft.

None of the great artists in history hid their personal truth, downplayed their identities or avoided difficult social or political issues.

Not one.

It’s not your job to please people, uphold the status quo, to decorate walls with pretty objects or create commodities to feed the art market – it’s your job to push boundaries, ask questions, disturb, uncover truth and envision possibilities.

Yup, that’s your fabric-print friendly artist Frida Kahlo with Leon Trotsky, oh yes it is!  I am given to understand that things became carnal…. ooo
