An artist called Anger Whore

An artist with an angry passion…

I came across Anger Whore (not sure of their gender or location) and was blown away by the work. It’s definitely worth a look at the gallery below and it isn’t for the faint hearted. I’ve tried to track down this graphic artist but drawn a blank. Who are they?

The typography is rather interesting as are the visual metaphors and I particularly like the sign-off logos – a grenade, a gun, male member logo and arts & crafts style with the pay off line “move along now”.

The “A God?” poster resonates with me. Whilst I enjoy football I’ve always found the behaviour of players (and managers) distasteful. It’s clear that the player (who will rename nameless) is illustrated as a demigod and is of course beyond all mortal laws and accountability – not far from reality.

It’s rather interesting to see a left field tribute to Keith Flint (of the Prodigy) who we lost in March 2019. There’s a nod to the album, The Fat of the Land with a rather angry looking crab!

What will they think of next?
