Underlined with politically charged themes and polarizing topics, the Striking Suit is the latest “protest art” by War Boutique for London’s maharishi apparel brand. A lament for the dead and injured during recent peaceful protests around the world, the Striking Suit features colorful panels throughout, though for a ominous purpose. In fact, each is an indicator of trauma level to vital areas on the body when struck, like a “traffic light” system used by riot police during training. A satirical reminder of police brutalities, the Striking Suit is now available maharishi boutique in London and its online store. Meanwhile, “I PROTEST”, an exhibition featuring more protest art, will go on display at Herbert Museum & Art Gallery in Coventry, England starting May 16th.
