Graphic satirist Kenyon Bajus puts it all in your face, politics, the violent degradation of culture and whole lot of wangs. His screen printing The Dark Side blends perfectly an image of Darth Vader with the Full Metal Jacket hero.
In his Sexism vs. Racism drawing, the simple blackening out of one word completes the phrases we don’t say in polite company but what might possibly be on our minds.
In his work he pokes explicit fun at the differences between Europeans and Americans by showing us circumcised and uncircumcised wangs in the grips of the late hip-hop singer Lisa Left Eye Lopez.
Unlike with a lot of shock art, Bajus seems to most always have a clear message: Look how far we’ve come as a nation. Look how far we have yet to go.
