Artists say Je Suis Charlie as they pay tribute to murdered Charlie Hebdo cartoonists

Artists from around the World have been posting their tributes to the murdered cartoonists from the French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo. From all different genres of the art world, artists have been expressing themselves in order to show solidarity in the face of the brutal terrorism which struck at the heart of Paris.

The fact that cartoonists were targeted has resulted in an outpouring of support from the artistic community outraged that such freedom of Speech should be attacked in such a horrendous way. The ironic truth being that the Charlie Hebdo cartoons have now been seen by many more people than who would ever have seen them previously with the next magazine expected to hit a print run of over a million.

If the extremists had wanted to silence the artistic community then they have failed in a big way with the sheer volume of support drowning them out. A particularly powerful theme being that of the pen being mightier than the gun in an evolution of that universally accepted famous truth.

These images have all been posted on social media accounts of the artists themselves and I’ve compiled as many as I could find here. The artistic community have spoken and will continue to do so, “Nous Sommes Charlie”.
