“Peace for Paris” started with one post from a digital artist showing his support to France. Jean Jullien, who created “Peace for Paris,” posted it on Twitter and Instagram not thinking it was going to become a symbol to show the world’s support and unity with France.
He created the image, just minutes after he heard of the tragedy, on a sketchbook in his lap. He never planned this image. It was an emotional reaction to how he felt about the horror that France was enduring.
Digital art can be a form of visual commentary to express artists feeling or emotions. In this image he wanted to convey “a message of peace and solidarity.”
