About
Described in Broadsheet as “the enfant terrible of Melbourne”, Azlan McLennan is a practacing artist and socialist activist. Influenced by the photomontage works of the German communist John Heartfield, he proudly stands in his tradition of ridiculing the political leaders of the day. Azlan regularly contributes his art to Socialist Alternative and other left organisations in Australia. He is also a member of the art punk band Red Terror.
