The Fine Art of Polemic Politics

"Title Page" Sandow Birk first came to my attention a few years ago when I was introduced to his woodcut series, The Depravities of War, in a book by the same name.

 I just read an article about a new project where he and his wife, artist Elyse Pignolet created two maps of the world, one from an American, politically conservative point-of-view and another from an American, politically liberal point-of-view. I had a few chuckles reading their maps.

Here's a link to the article I saw online at the Huffington Post. And also there's a great post about it over at the New American Paintings blog.
