New York-based artist David Molesky explores human agency as the driving force behind political protest in his series entitled "Riot Paintings". In the aftermath of the 2014 Ukrainian revolution, Molesky was inspired by media coverage of the events to create this politically charged series. The turbulent scenes we find in "Riot Paintings" look very similar to those found in our own corner of the world, from Baltimore to Ferguson. By taking an intimate approach to this subject matter and focusing on the role of the individual, Molesky unlocks universal themes of a very human process that transcend our national boundaries.
