Taliban Don’t Surf

July 12, 2011

My longtime friend and sometime co-worker Jason Filipow has put out a great, politically provocative, print which references the Clash and Apocalypse Now. Read more about the art and inspiration below.

Taking inspiration from Francis Ford Coppola’s monumental war film, Apocalypse Now, as well as the song Charlie Don’t Surf by The Clash, JRF’s Taliban Don’t Surf presents a topical narrative infused with politically-charged rhetoric. It parodies western stereotypes while questioning the ambiguous motives of the US military occupation along border of Pakistan/Afghanistan.
