We The People, 2006-2008
Screenprint, acrylic, plasti-dip and epoxy-resin on panel

The We The People series is based upon the original 10 Amendments of US Bill of Rights. Erkfitz has taken the original verbiage and coupled it with high contrast iconic images that depict both the intended purpose of the images that depict both the intended purpose of the amendments as well as how they are being misused by modern government and misconstrued by modern media.

The series is intended as an education tool and an artistic statement on current events. The works political stance is bipartisan, not intending the outcomes of the pieces to reflect a right or left political position.

Erkfitz has taken inspiration from some of the strongest statements of liberty and freedom in human history to create this series and hopes to reestablish the concerns of the people and their voice over the government.
