Design your own graphic compositions inspired by Peter Krasnow and Chaz Bojorquez.
Convey Meaning With Symbols
A graphic symbol is a written sign that is used to convey meaning without using language. The emojis on our phones are an example of symbols. We also see them in advertisements, in religious institutions, and in traffic signals. Street artists often use them in murals to communicate a message. Graphic symbols are all around us!
Both Peter Krasnow and Chaz Bojorquez use graphic symbols in their art. In, K-26 (For King David), Krasnow uses brightly colored symbols of protection referencing Jewish biblical themes. In A, Bojorquez, uses black graffiti-style lettering inspired by his neighborhood of Highland Park, Los Angeles, to create an abstract composition.
