Shepard Fairey

Early on, Shepard Fairey created the now famous Hope poster. During the campaign, it inspired other artists. The style has been copied and imitated over and over. Now during the final countdown, Fairly releases a new poster – obviously inspired by the first… Hopefully this election day, it inspires you.

Sold out

The print were available on BarackObama.com, but quickly sold out. Attached the the poster Fairey had this to say:

“I wanted to make an art piece of Barack Obama because I thought an iconic portrait of him could symbolize and amplify the importance of his mission. I believe Obama will guide this country to a future where everyone can thrive and I should support him vigorously for the sake of my two young daughters…I love the new VOTE image because I think that Barack Obama is the rare candidate who is simultaneously dignified, intellectual, and presidential, without losing his good natured humanity. I want someone as my president that I would like as my neighbor. I think our relationships with our neighbors around the globe will improve under Barack Obama”

    […] It has only been a week since the inauguration and surely you are still feeling the groove of this new administration. Either way though, we can agree that this photo by Hot Meteor is a stunning and somber image of once proud Fairey posters. […]
