Phoebe Wahl is a social activist as well as an artist with the goal to change how society works using only her artworks. She makes artwork, word art and sketches that are centered in various themes such as marriage between people of the same sex, body positivity and the controversial but timely Black Lives Matter. Her work can be viewed through her Instagram account and it is also shared in various social media platforms. When she participates in social events for a cause, she makes sure to display her artworks on site.
She is known for her love of flowers, winter scenarios, fairies and wood nymphs but what she wants to convey to the world is so much more. These tiny details are unnoticeable unless you have looked at her entire art pieces.
We are living in such a competitive and demanding society that people forget the two most important things – love and acceptance.
Every day is a struggle for some people because they have the need to stand their ground in order to protect their right which is more so than others. While there are those who feel that they have the duty to stand up for other people especially those who are not able to defend themselves.
No is such a strong word often used by many that people think they should always fight in order for them to get what belongs to them. It does not mean we have to be socially active and public about the issues we believe in but remaining true to those people around us is essential. Change is only possible through us and supporting one another is what matters.
Black Live Matter is a campaign which many people stand up for. They can support the cause in the form of writing articles, making word art or selling merchandise that will help the movement. This is what the arts of Phoebe is all about – it makes people think and be honest about how they truly feel. She voices her opinion through something beautiful and is making every effort to see social change in this present age.
Many people are passionate about sports. You will find them busy reading through the latest statistics of their favorite NBA or NFL teams. Others have in their possession a canvas art print of their beloved surfer catching the waves. The favorite photographs of your sports idols while on action can be transformed into high quality canvas prints that you can admire on the walls of the home.
Recently, NFL players became the subject of controversy when they took the knee while the US national anthem was playing. At least 70% of NFL players are black; however, their fans are 80% white and 63% male. It seems that some players want to play and be paid and yet be able to voice out their opinions on certain topics.
The league wants its team owners to be happy but it also wants to make sure that players are given the platform to voice out their concerns. The most obvious solution is a discussion but the issue is difficult to resolve. According to NFL Commissioner, Rodger Goodell, owners and players discussed during a two-day meeting that the league will work with players on the issues that affect their communities.
The league’s handbook will not be changed. The policy that players should stand during the national anthem is not a rule. Players are encouraged to stand but there is no clear answer whether the player will be disciplined by the owners if he takes the knee.
Sport has always been a site for expression of tensions in society. For example, if a black player is subjected to a form of discipline, it sends the message of disciplining all black bodies all over the country. However, there are people who believe that fans are not interested on the political opinions of players. The implications go beyond football and people can expect more tweets.
The photograph of your favorite player can be happily transformed into canvas art print with the assurance that the image will look great. There is also the option of split canvas prints wherein the total size will remain the same but will consist of smaller prints to look its absolute best.
