The street is a site of protest, hope and democracy. NEoN has invited local emerging artists to reclaim the streets with posters which address this year’s theme: React. Their work will be exhibited around the city for the duration of the festival. Remember, the street belongs to us all!
I’m a 24 year old artist living in Dundee, originally from Aberdeenshire. In my spare time the personal projects I focus on are vector art based – mainly experimenting with typography, icons and simple illustrations. I’ve worked freelance on a couple of games – I usually take a UI design role when making games but I’ve also contributed things like digitally painted textures and 3D models. I enjoy working on multiple areas of digital art and plan to keep experimenting with them all and see where they take me.
I am a student studying Graphic Design at DJCAD in Dundee and I want to create artwork that carries a strong message about humanity and our role as free creative individuals. The Feed the Machine poster project is a collaboration of work created by separate individuals all with unique artistic styles. All designs are given to the streets where they can be seen by anybody willing to acknowledge them, hopefully inspiring individuals to take control of their life and achieve their dreams. This poster I created depicts an anonymous figure that lives to be forgotten.I am a student studying Graphic Design at DJCAD in Dundee and I want to create artwork that carries a strong message about humanity and our role as free creative individuals.
I’m a transgender woman. It took me almost 25 years to realise and accept that my gender didn’t have to be what I was told at birth. Transitioning and becoming more comfortable with identifying as a woman has shown me that the notion of gender is fluid and complicated. I don’t feel the exact same way about my gender every day, and embracing that helped me get comfortable with how I “perform” my gender on the day-to-day and find myself. I wanted my poster to be about that, to tell people that might not be sure that it’s okay to experiment with your gender and presentation, and to change the words you put on it as you change, yourself.
