  14. 14. Mise en Scene (“Setting in Scene”) Look carefully at the picture and write a paragraph explaining what is going on in the scene from an objective/impartial viewpoint.

Content What do you think are the intentions of the artist? what kind of mood is created? What wider issues do you think the artist is exploring? What ideas could you take from the artist and explore in your work?
  15. 15. Hope (2008) consists of a stylized stencil portrait of Obama. The design was created in one day and printed first as a poster. Fairey sold 350 of the posters on the street immediately after printing them. It was then more widely distributed The poster was inspired by Social Realism and, while widely praised as original and unique, can be seen as part of a long tradition of contemporary artists drawing inspiration from political candidates and producing "posters that break the mold not only in terms of color and style but also in message and tone.“ Fairey himself has said, "My historical inspiration was the well-known JFK portrait where he is posed in a three- quarters view looking slightly upward and out into the distance. The image of Lincoln on the five- dollar bill has a similar feel." Source (Wikipedia)
