A case of minimalism.
|Rayma Suprani, Health / Health in Venezuela. |
Printed in El Universal, September 17, 2014.
The straight line. Vertical. Red. With the signature of Hugo Chávez.
Symbolical and literal in the very same take. Its cartoonist, Rayma Suprani, was fired the very next day of its publication from the paper, El Universal, whose cartoonist she had been for 19 years.
Chávez died in 2013. His successors proved Rayma's point by their very reaction.
Such is the power of the cartoonist. Such is the pressure under which the cartoonist is living.
