Vancouver art exhibit explores rise of rage and racism

Interview with Cathy Kearney, CBC News, March 24, 2019

“An A-frame sign with a painting of an angry, white man outside a Westside Vancouver art gallery is a jarring juxtaposition to the spring morning calm.

The image, which elicits double takes and stares from passersby, shows a spiked-haired man in a green jacket, with eyes bulging, mouth open, yelling in fury.

It’s one of a series of portraits called Angry White Men by Vancouver artist David Haughton, who says he wanted to explore the rise of rage and evil among hate groups and some disenfranchised people.

“They are appalling images and they are saying stuff that is deeply disturbing,” said Haughton of men depicted in the series.”
