Art Stronger Than Hate! is a provocative, color cartoon book that offers a visual commentary on our current political, social, and economic world, arguing for Free Speech rather than Hate Speech. Art Stronger Than Hate! is evidence that art can save lives and inspire the human spirit.
Author Issa Nyaphaga is a multimedia artist and human rights activist based in the U.S. He is globally known as a political cartoonist and a critical thinker who has collaborated with many well-known and established artists and institutions around the world. Back in the 1990's in his home country of Cameroon, Issa published over five thousand cartoons, drawings, illustrations, graphic novels and comics, reaching five million readers—many of whom are marginalized and illiterate. A contributing cartoonist for Charlie Hebdo in the late ‘90s in Paris, Issa was one of the four artists who spoke at the United Nations Human Rights Council in Geneva on March 6, 2015, addressing the issue of freedom of artistic expression.
Issa divides his time between Cameroon, France and the United States, where he mentors young artists and shares his work with the world. He now lives in Santa Fe, teaching at the community college and at the Tarnoff Art Center.
