POST NO HATE is a visual dialogue between artist and viewer as both attempt to see life beyond the pandemic. The imagined street scenes feel familiar, but are suspended in time, in limbo between pre- and post-virus.
POST NO HATE is a series of large-scale canvases inspired by the graffiti and sticker art of international urban street culture and emblematic of a world in lockdown. The origin for this new work lies in MacDonald’s own photographs of street signs, graffiti and pop culture sticker art taken during pre-pandemic. Photoshop facilitates the reduction of forms and the removal of color from these photographs. The new graphics are then digitally collaged together and painted to create a completely reimagined street scene.
