    We Own the Future Metal Edition Hand-Pulled 2-Color Silkscreen Print on Aluminum Metal by Pop Graffiti Artist Shepard Fairey- Obey x Antonino D'Ambrosio Rare Street Art Limited Edition Artwork. 2015 Signed by Shepard Fairey & Numbered Limited Edition of 3 Artwork Size 18x24 Extremely low edition of only 3! WE OWN THE FUTURE METAL Fine Art Edition: Silkscreen on Metal Silkscreen on Metal (Aluminum) Printed Matters-Detroit 18 x 24 inches (45.7 x 61 cm) 2015. We Own the Future The Makers of Fire Transform Our World With Creative Response "We Own the Future" is a metal silkscreen print created by Shepard Fairey in 2015 as part of his OBEY art campaign. The print features a stylized image of a woman's face, with the words "WE OWN THE FUTURE" in bold letters across the top. The woman in the image is wearing a hat and holding a flame with angel wings. Fairey's use of lettering and metal is a nod to the future punk aesthetic that has influenced much of his work. The message of the print is a call to action for people to take ownership of their future and to strive for positive change in the world. It speaks to Fairey's belief in the power of grassroots activism and the ability of individuals to effect change through their actions. "We Own the Future" was produced in a limited edition of 3 prints, with each print signed and numbered by the artist. The print measures 18 x 24 inches and is printed on aluminum, giving it a sleek and modern look. As with much of Fairey's work, "We Own the Future" has become a popular symbol of resistance and activism, appearing on protest signs and in street art around the world. 0

  • Vote For Light Silkscreen Print by Jamie Reid

    Jamie Reid Vote For Light Silkscreen Print by Jamie Reid

    Vote For Light Silkscreen Print by Jamie Reid Hand-Pulled on Wove Fine Art Paper Limited Edition Artwork. 2015 Signed & Numbered Limited Edition of 50 Artwork Size 19.6x24.41 Silkscreen Print of People in Face Masks and the Words "Vote For Light". Small bump to the middle extreme left margin. "Vote For Light" by Jamie Reid is a remarkable embodiment of the zeitgeist captured in the medium of silkscreen print. Hand-pulled on luxurious Wove Fine Art Paper, the piece, created in 2015, is an amalgamation of Reid's perspective and the cultural tides of the moment. Limited in its run, only 50 of these pieces were produced, each signed and numbered by Reid himself, ensuring authenticity and exclusivity. The artwork, measuring 19.6x24.41 inches, showcases an arresting visual of individuals adorned in face masks, an imagery that resonates with the contemporary experiences of the global populace. The indelible phrase "Vote For Light" emblazoned amidst the portrait of the masked figures sends a powerful message, potentially a call to action or a plea for hope amidst times of uncertainty. Silkscreen printing, traditionally associated with pop art, has been masterfully used here to blend the lines between street art, graffiti, and the more conventional gallery artworks. Reid’s decision to utilize this method is a testament to his commitment to maintain the raw and unfiltered aura commonly associated with street and graffiti art. Jamie Reid's "Vote For Light" is more than just a print; it stands as a symbol, a social commentary, and an invitation for discourse. As with most artwork that converges on the realms of pop, street, and graffiti art, this piece not only captures the artist's viewpoint but also challenges its audience to introspect and engage with the world around them. Drawing inspiration from the events and sentiments of its time, the artwork offers a snapshot of history, forever immortalized on fine art paper.

Each piece is unique and colors, painting, spray paintings made by hand by the artist are random, vary, and you may not receive the exact pictured item! "I use photographic images as the basis for the art, but I would sometimes draw directly on the acetate before I burn the screens to bring out parts of the images I felt were important. Each piece for this run was individually screen printed and hand-painted using a variety of acrylic and other mediums. Take notice of the colors rather than the image, even though that might be difficult to do sometimes. The colors represent what's going on in my life at any given moment." - Bobby Hill

Government & Politics Street Pop Art & Graffiti Artwork

Artistic Commentary on Government and Politics in Street Pop Art

Street pop art and graffiti artwork have long served as a visual language for political discourse and social commentary. The inherently public and accessible nature of these art forms makes them powerful tools for artists to express their views on government and politics. Whether splashed across city walls or displayed in galleries, these works often reflect the artists' perspectives on the political climate, societal issues, and power dynamics. The relationship between government and politics and street pop art is symbiotic. On one hand, the art form often thrives under the radar of official scrutiny, its rebellious streak a response to perceived overreach or authoritarian tendencies. On the other hand, it can serve as a sanctioned medium for political messaging, especially in more liberal societies that embrace public art as a form of civic engagement. Artists utilize this platform to spark debate, challenge authority, and inspire political action, sometimes at significant personal risk.

The Impact of Street Art on Political Expression

Street art's ability to reach a broad audience outside of traditional art venues makes it an incredibly effective means of political expression. Murals and installations often become local landmarks, drawing attention to the issues they portray and making political discourse a part of everyday life. The visual strategies employed by street artists—such as parody, satire, and symbolism—can distill complex political messages into impactful imagery that resonates with the viewer on an intuitive level. The political influence of street pop art and graffiti can be seen in its use by movements seeking to democratize public space and challenge dominant narratives. The art form's agility in adapting to the changing political landscape allows it to address immediate concerns and react to current events faster than traditional forms of political commentary. Its impact is magnified by the advent of social media, where images of political street art can go viral, reaching international audiences and becoming symbols of resistance and solidarity.

Street Pop Art as a Chronicle of Political Change

Over the decades, street pop art has chronicled the ebb and flow of political change from the protest movements of the 1960s to the present day. It often provides historical snapshots of the public sentiment during times of political upheaval. In societies undergoing rapid transformation or conflict, street art can document the aspirations and frustrations of the populace, often serving as a barometer for social tension. This art form also raises questions about the ownership and use of public space. By taking art out of the private realm and into the communal, street artists challenge the idea that government and authorities have ultimate control over visual and cultural expressions in public areas. This act of reclaiming space is a political statement, affirming the right to free expression and participation in the civic dialogue.
In summary, street pop art and graffiti artwork occupy a unique position at the intersection of art, politics, and public discourse. By engaging directly with the community and utilizing public spaces as canvases, these art forms democratize access to political expression and empower individuals and movements to communicate their messages powerfully and poignantly. As governments and politics evolve, so will the art that reflects and often challenges them, maintaining its role as a vital voice in the ongoing conversation about power, policy, and the people.
