Hate and Prejudice stem from an ignorance of which we cannot remain silent in the face of those who spew it. We must learn to defend ourselves, immediately, but in an educated way. "The David Project" offers the skills, tools, and knowledge that help us to respond (A.R.M. is an acronym for one of the methods). I created the art as if it were graffiti on the wall… a place where images and words have held their own form of influence and power in our society (often sending a message for the passer by.) The quote across the mouth "An imperfect voice is better than a perfect silence." comes from "The David Project" ( you can read more at: http://www.davidproject.org )
