The Standing Invitation

Neyestani

leave a comment »

For this other (regrettably) quick post, I want to introduce you to Mana Neyestani, a magnificent political cartoonist from Iran. His black and white images of democracy and violence combine a deliciously black humour with a fiery rage against the brutality of the government. The colour green is for the movement for democracy in Iran; a grinning Pinocchio is the lying President. But the images of brutality and oppression are timeless and understandable even without translation. Enjoy.

Facebook users can find extensive collections here and here; others will have to make do with the google image search for his stuff, though the viewing is less good.
