Clinton Fein and the Art of Political Protest
Date of Review: 
Deborah Phillips
Toomey Tourell Gallery

As a Web-based artist, Fein produces outrageous graphics that make an instant statement. The artist's deft understanding of his political content and high-impact images are communicated and disseminated globally, taking on an afterlife of their own. His campaign of Shock and Awe is unrelenting as he pairs his message with a meticulous attention to detail. While many slap-dash images circulate on the Internet, Fein makes every pixel count. His aesthetic and technique place him squarely in the historical continuum of political art and graphic design -- from Anti-War Cartoons to Propaganda Parodies.
