Political Art

For many people, political posters are considered to be a form of art used during election campaigns or featuring political events such as past presidents or historic incidents concerning governmental figures. While that type of art is included in political leader canvas art, it is only a part of this far-reaching category. Political art is, in essence, a pictorial study of society.

It's a way of documenting and commenting on the people and things that made our society into what it is today. Civil rights, equality, commentary of current events, and even the overthrow of empires are all encompassed in these highly creative and diverse works of art.

Traditional and contemporary artists alike have used this type of art for various purposes. Andy Warhol, Diego Rivera, and many others created political art in order to express what was important to them and how they felt about events that were changing their society. Social relations and communication are the primary theme of this artform. Goya created political leader prints in order to relay his feelings on slavery, Warhol on mass commercialism and Rivera on revolutionist figures. Thanks to these artists, future generations now have documentaries of the things important to people of that time and the issues that were being addressed. Political art doesn't just address acts of government or commerce. Civil leaders like Ghandi, Martin Luther King Jr., Mandela, Barack Obama, and even religious figures, like the Pope, are also displayed prominently in political art.
