Frank Riot uses her creativity mostly through graphic design and poetry to offer critical perspectives on capitalism, racism and climate breakdown. Some of her recent works confront prejudiced and racist power structures as well as oppressive systems including incarceration, detention centres, the police and the criminalisation of sex work.
In response to PPE shortages during the pandemic, she collaborated with EveryDoctor on a protest-style poster campaign that featured her work on building-sized digital displays in Oxford Street and was held in solidarity by Jeremy Corbyn. Other pieces have included challenging racist narratives around Brexit, showing solidarity with refugees and migrants and confronting transphobia.
Frank Riot’s art is intended for the public sphere and has appeared in numerous locations in the United Kingdom, Mexico, and the United States.
