for The Peoples Republic of Stokes Croft
Celebrating the life of Nelson ‘Madiba’ Mandela,
Felix ‘FLX’ Braun’s latest print
evokes the one-time South African President’s earlier life
as a revolutionary firebrand.
Madiba was Nelson’s clan name,
the name black South Africans referred to him by; and the name
they chanted in their 100s of thousands when he passed away.
The print echoes the style of political posters from the ‘60s,
whose potent messages were delivered using rough and ready graphics,
printed cheaply and quickly on makeshift screens
the inks pulled through hand- cut stencils.
Felix spoke at great length to the talented folk at
Jacknife Posters and Mark My Words Screen Printing,
about how to produce the desired effect.
The result is clear for all to see.
ALL PROFITS TO THE PEOPLES REPUBLIC OF STOKES CROFT
