Discord of Protests

(Part one of Discord of Society)                                                                                   These paintings contain discord, or disharmony. Meaning they will be negative and/or have a deeper meaning. Most likely will be photography of events such as protesting. I chose Discord because I believe it is important to highlight negativity but instead of just the classic "crimes" or negative things such as poverty, stealing, murder, etc. I chose to highlight the bad effects of Protesting.
