Description

Controlled Flight Into Terrain is episode three in the sociopolitical graphic commentary from John Yates’ Stealworks design compound. A San Francisco Bay Area independent designer, his work has appeared for years within the underground music and political scenes. Through such work as this Democracy We Deliver, Officer Friendly? and Mom, We’re Home!, Yates has gained a somewhat precarious notoriety within both the counter and over-the-counter cultures. This latest collection draws on themes familiar to those found throughout his previous body of work, simply because those themes never seem to go away.
“From subtle propagandist to raging agit-prop provocateur, John Yates exhibits the keen eye and sharp wit of an art world Robin Hood; Yates robs images from the rich and gives power to the poor, exposing the raw underbelly of the ruling class.” —Winston Smith
