UnHerd with Freddie Sayers


Cancelled for pro-peace street art

Florence Read meets cancelled street artist, Peter Seaton.

Earlier this month, a mural of two soldiers embracing, one Ukrainian and one Russian, appeared on the side of a building in Melbourne. It was the work of Peter Seaton, an Australian street artist known for large-scale graffiti. The title he gave the work was ‘Peace before Pieces’. He describes it as a ‘meditation on the dehumanisation of war’.

He joined UnHerd in the studio to answer the question: is pro-peace art the next victim of tribal thinking?
