The reason I chose the title for this piece is because of all of the leaders of the worlds socialist republics, Mao takes the cake.
I created this piece (insert the time period or phase of your life)
My inspiration in creating this piece was after reading a book about Mao, the stern black lined outline and communist star are engulfed by the graffiti of western culture, which is what has happed to Maos dream of a peoples republic
Hey everyone. My name is Alex Hodges. I am a born and raised Kansas City artist. I graduated with a degree in history from the University of Kansas, focusing on military history and cultural histories of developing nations. I began traveling at a young age with my family, until I got a wild hair up my ass, got the itch and I ventured out on my own. I have since lived in Tanzania, South Africa, France, Romania, Belgium, Argentina and Ghana and explored and experienced a nice chunk of the world and the wonderful cultures and people that go along with it. Most of my work abroad has been for nonprofits, some for international media, and some too crazy to discuss on the Internet. Currently I am in law school focusing a lot on international law. My passion for culture, people, history, and the developing world is reflected in many of my pieces. Feel free to contact me with questions, and don’t forget to follow me on Instagram to see what cool shit I’m doing today. Instagram - xanderhodgey Website: xanderhodges.com xanderhodgesphotography.com
