Tracie Ching: Kava-nope

In light of the recent allegations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanagh, protesters around the country have begun to speak out against what they believe to be inadequate due process and a rushed appointment for a nominee many see as a threat to civil rights.

The face of this movement has been chosen as an image created by D.C based artist Tracie Ching. Her bold and concise design originally created for the Unite For Justice campaign has been adopted by hundreds of protest groups around the country to show their opposition.

 

Ching’s image reflects the iconic “Hope” poster made for Barack Obama’s 2008 campaign, yet turns it on its head by switching the role of the icon from a steadfast idealist, to an infamous figure of civil division.

More of Chings work can be found on her website and Instagram.
