Social Media Spreads Symbol of Peace

By KATHERINE SNAVELY
​“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.”

“Peace for Paris” has been posted and displayed by thousands of people. This shows that art has the power to move people in many ways, like taking a stand and uniting people together in solidarity for one cause…Peace.
