Benjamin Weisz (Year 9)

 

Benjamin was inspired by the artistic merit of Communism in Russia in the early 20th century. There are many artistic posters which were created during the Russian Revolution, and he was especially inspired by the one of Lenin's arm reaching out toward the viewer. There is something marvelous about the posters, and the particular style that they have. Benjamin chose that particular poster as it had the 1917 date in the corner, which he changed  to 2017 to mark the 100th anniversary of the revolution. Benjamin was first exposed to the communist posters in Tate modern and has been fascinated by Russia's history ever since.
