EVERY DAY IS YOUR CHANCE - 2020 Protest Stencil Painting
36" x 48"
In May 2020, the murder of George Floyd by police sparked protests, riots and political unrest across major cities in the United States and other countries. Demonstrations during the covid pandemic escalated into looting, damage and violence from various groups and police. Although we all believe in fighting for racial equality against police brutality we also experienced organized looting/destruction in our cities at the same time. We sometimes find ourselves having to protect what’s good in harsh times. We plastered the boarded up windows across our city with homemade stencils, both taking pride of our city in hopes to protect it from further damage by people who don’t live here. Our original stencil(s) are still in tact and we’ll be making several canvas paintings from them.
