IDa4's Sochi 2014 Statement.


Earlier this week the North East was blessed with a true piece of art and a dominant stance against homophobia in Russia. Sadly, merely days after the piece was completed, it has been covered up by the most hideous advertising i've seen in a long time.


While the advert is only up for certain days of the week, it doesn't really show a great message, especially since the piece is up in the heart of Newcastle's gay scene. I think management of The Eagle need to really think about this and the effect it has on their image. The poster could easily be moved to another location and have the same effect.

The only interesting thing about the placement of the advertisement is the dominant red shoes stamping on oppressed individual on the floor.
