Presented in 2010, “A Bunch of Crock” was an exhibit from graphic designer and Phoenix-based artist Safwat Saleem that focused on “the absurdities of political campaigns and the unfortunate role of minorities”. I only came across photos and works from the exhibit recently through Saleem’s website and was immediately struck by how relevant they are to the current political and social climate, especially here in Arizona. For that reason, I’m compelled to share them here. Featured above are prints from the series, which you can purchase at Saleem’s online store.

“Postering art downtown, because posters aren’t just for big Hollywood movie promos & a way to advertise upcoming shows cheap…”
