Poster of the Week

Gee Vaucher
Offset, 2004
London, UK
CSPG’s Poster-of-the-Week is a graphic response to the state of the union, the elections, the Democrats, the Republicans, the Tea Party, the wars, the economy, climate change and anything else that is disturbing. Viewer’s comments are welcome
East London born Gee Vaucher started gaining recognition designing politically outspoken record covers and newsletters for the British anarchist punk band Crass (1977-1984). Her work became a strong influence for protest art as well as the punk and anarchist aesthetic of her time. She used her surrealist influenced collage style and stencil lettering to incite social change, exposing the ills of civil society with frank and often disturbing imagery. Vaucher continues to create extraordinarily insightful imagery that strips away society’s veneer to reveal hidden truths. Her work is hard-hitting with a gripping aesthetic and has been exhibited internationally as well as been included in a number of books and publications.
