Artist Statement

"I made this poster in the aftermath of the election because I feel powerless, defeated, afraid; don't know what to do but want to help. So many people are feeling scared and stunned and have no idea what's going to happen to them in the next 4 years. Wearing safety pins (copying the movement in Britain after the Brexit vote) is a symbol of solidarity with Women, People of Color, Immigrants, LGBTQ people, Religious minorities, and others facing discrimination, targeted violence, and hate mongering. I am donating all proceeds I receive from the sale of this print to the ACLU or similar group. Please help me in this fight?I can't do it without you." - Liza Donovan

Liza is a Graphic Designer and artist living in Charlotte, NC. She has always been a passionate art lover and project enthusiast. Not to be discouraged by her very first drawings of gross anatomical displacement, where arms grew out of heads, she honed her technique only to find that arms CAN grow out of heads. She has always turned to art for expression and is inspired by the culture and fashion of the 60s, American post-punk posters, Eastern European poster art, and cats everywhere. Drawn to the nonsensical, playful, and surreal, Liza insists on work being fun.

About Power to the Poster

Power to the Poster seeks poster designs that are catalysts for change. They challenge where we've been and set a course for where we could go. It is our hope we add to the dialogue of what is next for America and the world. Launched in 2011 by Justin Kemerling.

About our Prints

Each poster is hand-printed and handled, to make sure that only the highest quality is offered and sent out. The matte paper and high quality of inks make for a vibrant image which looks great both framed, and au-naturel. Printed in Los Angeles, CA, on Epson Enhanced Matte Paper, heavyweight stock, high color gamut, using Epson UltraChrome HDR ink-jet technology. Framed posters offer the same, museum-quality printed poster, but wrapped in a protective black frame. The frame is lightweight and includes a shatter-resistant acrylite front protector, so it won't break in the mail. International orders may be subject to customs duties & taxes.
