Shepard Fairey Obama Poster


Shepard Fairey, the artist behind President Obama’s HOPE iconic art, has released a new Obey poster to commemorate the inauguration. Fairey’s critics have detracted from his style of art, where he works from 1940’s, 50’s and 60’s iconic art and works them into his own unique commentaries of the world today. His style reminds me of Andy Warhol’s early pieces and the critics’ remarks were similar .
