This collage says a lot about my work and beliefs as a socialist printmaker. Recruiting and re- working images from revolutionary artists - Dave King, German Expressionists, John Heartfield, Atelier Populaire - I put them back on the front line in the  design work I did for Hull Rock Against Racism.

 

AgitProp is as much about questioning culture as it is about direct campaigning. My new stuff is inspired by other dissidents, writers and artists, like  Hannah Arendt, Mary McCarthy and Franz Masereel, whose unique visions help shape the political, literary and pictorial elements in my prints.

 

I'm a teacher, print-maker, writer and trade unionist.
