For the last few years Bradford born and based artist Mohammed Hamza has been putting out some of the best revolutionary art around under the Intifada Street banner. As the name of the project would suggest, the struggles of the Palestinian People feature heavily in his work. Other notable key influences and inspirations include Malcom X and Mohamed Ali, hip-hop artists Dead Prez and Akala, the struggles of the people of Yemen...
Rumi, Baba Fareed, Huey Newton, Steve Biko, Kahlil Gibran, Edward Said, Noam Chomsky, Norman Finkelstein, Tupac, Immortal Technique, Mos Def, Lupe Fiasco...
and many more besides. Hamza wants his art to "ignite debate" and there is no doubt it will do that.
Here is a small sample of some of Intifada Street's offerings:
