After seeing a poster created by US artist Gary Lockwood AKA Freehand Profit in solidarity with the ongoing protests in Istanbul, Turkey, I realized that I hadn’t encountered a graphic outpouring in the way I had with other previous protests/movements.
My first response was to create my own update of the 99% poster I created for the Occupy movement.
The second was to go looking online for galleries of art dedicated to the events, since there’s no central organizing group, my search centered around the hashtags used to promote the protests: #DirenGeziParki #OccupyGezi. So far I haven’t encountered anything other than some collections of street art, so I decided to start one here.
Have you encountered or created a graphic response to the situation in Istanbul? Please share.
