Introducing “Artivism”. The latest t-shirt design within the Mark Stoddart Collection
This wonderful new design is titled after the popular movement where “artivists” (a combination of the words artist and activism), use their preferred medium to creatively address social/political issues plaguing their society and the world.
(ARTIVISM tee available in Mens sizing ONLY. Exclusively online at www.liwi68.com/products/artivism)
Whether it’s through spoken word, painting, sculpting, film or graffiti, artivists feel compelled to voice their concerns through art to bring about the required change. Whether it’s alone or united together, artivists have adopted the slogan “by any medium necessary”, a play on the popular saying by Malcolm X “by any means necessary”.
As an artist and self-proclaimed activist, I have always felt the need to pay homage to individuals that have paved the way for myself and others. I’ve always felt a strong connection to the Civil Rights Movement and cannot deny the significance of this movement on my life and continued journey thus far.
A lot of my art pieces pay homage to various Civil Rights and Sport icons that broke down barriers and fought against injustices.

This summer support the movement and all art forms and all artists around the world who are trying to bring about social change through art. Artists/Artivist throughout the world will continue to convey our messages, and feelings “by any medium necessary.”
