Anthony Freda Illustrator & Political Artist Bio Gallery

in art •  2 years ago

 "Anthony Freda’s art is a flower in the barrel of a shotgun but a  bullet in the mouth of politics. He is fearless and fierce and years  from now, when we look back on this moment in history, his art will be  an accurate snapshot. A picture of what we should never forget lest  history repeat itself. "   -Ara Hawkins 

 "Anthony Freda is a Long Island-based artist who is equal parts  editorial illustrator and visual political activist. He worked for  several years in his own corporate advertising agency before quitting to  focus on editorial illustration.   Mr. Freda currently is part of the adjunct faculty of the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York.   He creates a weekly political graphic for The Trends Journal, aptly called The Weekly Freda.  His mainstream client list includes; Time, The New Yorker, Rolling  Stone, The New York Times and numerous other publications. 

 Freda explains, “I may have started my career pimping alcohol and  cigarettes, but I have repented and now use my visual communication  skills to sell ideas.” Freda creates his potent and provocative  illustrations with a combination of found objects and surfaces, collage  and drawing—all mixed together to great effect. Freda says that he uses  art “as a tool of political activism”—he has a whole section on his  website labelled “political art”—and his imagery often carries a  powerful message of peace and social justice".
