Artists Cat Phillips and Peter Kennard first partnered together to create art as a response to the invasion of Iraq (the iconic Photo Op shows Tony Blair taking a selfie in front of an enormous explosion). Seeing their work as part of the international movement for social and political change, they use digital imagery and paper collage to create impactful satirical images that question both politicians and the media.
