This graphic art quietly obliterates conventional thinking patterns.

It combines painstaking minimalism with the concussive force of visual pun to bend the narrative and flip the script.

PORTRAIT OF THE ARTIST


ORIGIN STORY

While serving a life sentence in Corporate America, Properganda engineered a daring escape. By weaponizing his imagination and the techniques of mass media, he subverted his captors and seized his freedom.

Now a fugitive, he shares pieces of that freedom with everyone he can. Through wearable and shareable art, he intends to provoke enough critical thought to dislodge our everyday assumptions and compulsions. Big changes in the world start with small shifts in the heart and mind.

Each piece here was crafted for the armchair activists- those who see through the obvious and question the status quo. If the message moves you, if it hits home, pay it forward- wear it or share it.


INSPIRATION

Iā€™m inspired by the graphic art of Banksy, Ron English, Robbie Conal, Barbara Kruger and Shepard Fairey.

I emulate modernist designers like Aleksander Rodchenko, Piet Zwart, Paul Rand, Saul Bass, Seymour Schwast, Nancy Skolos, Paula Scher, Tibor Kalman and April Greiman.

My heart sings the praises of Aaron Douglas, Emory Douglas, Nelson Stephens and Africobra.

I grew up soaking in the comic book genius of Stan Lee, Frank Miller, Jack Kirby, John Byrne and Frank Frazetta while bumping the revolutionary anthems of Public Enemy, Rage Against the Machine and Boogie Down Productions.
