Peter Fuss, an artist known for his edgy and sharp attitude, illegally posts his art on billboards to portray the social and political issues around him.
Not afraid to speak his mind on politics or the relationship between religion and art, Peter Fuss fleshes out his work with deep meaning and a simplistic result. Entitled ‘This Means Peace ‘, his work was first placed in Gdansk, Poland in January 2008 at a railway station. The two billboards, use his signature minimalist typography and feature Arabic writing with an explained translation underneath that reads “This Means Love” and “This Means Peace.”. Fuss’ message was that people should think carefully about the widespread beliefs after the 9/11 attacks that all that is Arab is dangerous. He questions the stereotypes that shackle a group of people and challenges it with the thought provoking use of typography.
Fuss challenges political decisions through the use of artistic emotion and installs a sense of unity to those who view his work.
