Barbara Kruger

While thinking about the upcoming PSA poster assignment, I found inspiration from Barbara Kruger’s collage style artwork. I really admire the way Kruger creates contrast in her pieces by using vintage looking black and white photographs along with bright red details and text to emphasize her message. Kruger uses similar language and slogans seen in the media to mimic and critique the practice of consumerism, and I think this is made clear through her use of simple fonts and red labels. Perhaps I will find a way to incorporate Kruger’s style of using contrasting colors and simple language in my PSA poster.
