Inspired Agitators is a series of posters outlining the philosophies
of a selection of international activists. History is embedded with
obstacles that must have seemed insurmountable.
Yet, again and again, battles are waged in climates of indifference,
hostility and brutality. This collection represents inspired moments
in history when: an Indian Nation wore down the U.S. government,
an artist defied the Nazi party, women achieved the right to vote,
a socialist government was elected in North America, universal healthcare
was implemented, a union for all was organized, a woman was finally
accepted legally as a person, a black man fought public lynchings.
David Lester interview -- Visual Resistance
Magazine posts a new David Lester illustration every Saturday with text by Jean Smith and a free Mecca Normal mp3. David's paintings were shown at Spin Gallery in Toronto, as part of a juried show put on by Wegway Magazine. David's multi-panel Noir Canada -- a cautionary tale of how facism spreads -- was shown on a North American tour in 2002, and was featured in Broken Pencil, Canada's magazine of underground culture. David's cartoons introduce a cast of characters who demonstrate the best and the worst of society -- his work ran regularly in the San Diego Reader.
