Anthony Burrill's bold text pieces shine a beacon for positive social change. Highlighted in the artist's works with Extinction Rebellion, Hope Not Hate, Shelter and Amnesty, his practice has remained staunchly dedicated to using words for good.
In a time of worldwide upheaval and political unrest, the artist creates works which both push the conversation forward and allow a moment of escapism through punchy colour and beautifully crafted design.
We spoke with Anthony on his role as a political artist, printmaking and how he came to his signature visual language. This was recorded remotely under January 2021 lockdown.
