    The Pride Heart Archival Pigment Fine Art Limited Edition Print on Hand Deckled 290gsm Moab Entrada Paper by Artist Jenna Morello, Street Pop Art Graffiti Legend. 2022 Signed & Numbered Limited Edition of 50 Archival Pigment Print on Hand-Deckled 290gsm Moab Entrada Fine Art Paper Artwork Size 16x20 The Pride Heart by Jenna Morello is a compelling archival pigment fine art print that captures the essence of contemporary street art with a pop art sensibility. Embodying the vibrant spirit of graffiti art, Morello's limited edition print is a resonant piece, alive with color and emotional depth. Limited to a series of 50 signed and numbered editions, the artwork brings exclusivity and a personal touch to each piece, which measures 16x20 inches. The artist's signature not only authenticates each print but also marks the direct connection between creator and collector. Morello's choice of medium, the 290gsm Moab Entrada fine art paper, is renowned for its durability and ability to hold rich colors, ensuring that the vivid hues of The Pride Heart endure. The hand-deckled edges contribute an element of handcrafted individuality, breaking away from the mechanical precision often associated with printmaking. This technique adds an organic touch, suggesting a raw, urban energy usually found in street art. The artwork is a visual metaphor for passion and diversity, represented through a heart composed of multi-colored roses dripping in a cascade of hues. An arrow, traditional in its symbolism of love's trials and tribulations, pierces the heart, contrasting the bright colors with its monochrome palette. This juxtaposition is evocative of Morello's ability to fuse classical iconography with a modern twist, a hallmark of her artistic vision. Jenna Morello's The Pride Heart is a testament to the enduring allure of street art and its capacity to convey profound messages through public expression. This piece encapsulates a bold statement within pop and graffiti art, inviting reflection on themes of love, diversity, and resilience. It is a cherished piece for collectors and admirers of this unique art form.

  • Open Minds Silkscreen Print by Shepard Fairey- OBEY

    Shepard Fairey- OBEY Open Minds Silkscreen Print by Shepard Fairey- OBEY

    Open Minds 4-Color Hand-Pulled Limited Edition Silkscreen Print on Cream Speckletone Art Paper by Shepard Fairey Rare Street Art OBEY Pop Artwork Artist. Signed & Numbered Screen Print OPEN MINDS 36 inches by 24 inches Edition of 675 February 3, 2022 Handling Creases to Bottom Left & Right Margins. This “Open Minds” print references the language used by the powerful fuel industry lobby to soften political and public resistance to fracking. Fracking is a form of gas extraction which beyond the carbon impact of the gas itself, contaminates groundwater, pollutes the air, and creates strains on water resources because of the high volume of water required for the fracking process. Open-mindedness about any of those detrimental impacts of fracking and other fossil fuel extraction is absurd if one cares about the environment, air and water quality, and global warming. Powerful corporations and their lobbyists spend exorbitant sums to distract from and discredit the science-based conversation about the environment. I’m all for open minds and open eyes when it comes to putting science and the welfare of the planet before corporate profits. A portion of the proceeds from this print will benefit Greenpeace to support its work to enhance environmental protections and combat climate change. – Shepard

  • Eyes On The King Verdict Silkscreen Print by Shepard Fairey- OBEY

    Shepard Fairey- OBEY Eyes On The King Verdict Silkscreen Print by Shepard Fairey- OBEY

    Eyes On The King Verdict 4-Color Hand-Pulled Limited Edition Silkscreen Print on Fine Speckletone Art Paper by Shepard Fairey x Ted Soqui Rare Street Art OBEY Pop Artwork Artist. 2022 Signed by Shepard Fairey & Ted Soqui, Numbered 18x24 inches. Screenprint on thick cream Speckletone paper. Numbered edition of 600. "I based this “Eyes on the King Verdict” print on photos taken by Ted Soqui during the LA riots of spring 1992. Ted has a long history of photographing activists and protests, which began after the “not guilty” verdicts on April 29, 1992, for the four officers who severely beat Rodney King. I especially love the central pic of a young woman protester in a Malcolm X hat contemplating the scene. I think it is important to consider the symbolic weight of the Rodney King verdict and the emotional impact on communities of color seeking justice and accountability. At the time, 30 years ago, I remember feeling enraged that such a blatant act of police brutality was going unpunished when it was captured on video. It is heartbreaking how frequently similar acts of violence and abuse of power by law enforcement have gone unpunished, even when caught on camera. I don’t ever condone violence or looting, but I understand why LA erupted in riots and protests after the King verdict. When people feel that the American system has failed them repeatedly, things can reach a boiling point. The urge to protest injustice and the right to do so are legitimate, even if looting is not legitimate. The LA riots were a tragic mixture. However, beware of those who try to conflate protest with “criminal agitation” or “inciting a riot.” When the system fails the people, it is nothing short of patriotic for the people to protest for a solution. Ted Soqui and I both signed the “Eyes on the King Verdict” print.” – Shepard

Screenprint on thick cream Speckletone paper. Numbered edition of 350. "These “Factory Stacks” images combine the austere, angular power of factory architecture with graphic elements commenting on what we promote and embrace as a society even when those things are destructive. The fossil fuel industries have tremendous power economically, but we now know that not only are fossil fuel sources finite but that using them is terrible for climate change and, therefore, the eco-systems that sustain life on our planet. Unfortunately, due to the political power of these industries and public apathy about climate change, the government subsidizes the fossil fuel industries for billions even as they damage the environment. The government works for the citizens, so the choice is ours. Do we support endless power for wealthy fossil fuel corporations? Or policies that put the earth first with the planet before profits?

  • Protect the eARTh Silkscreen Print by Hijack

    Hijack Protect the eARTh Silkscreen Print by Hijack

    Protect the eARTh Hand-Pulled 4-Color Silkscreen Print on Fine Art Paper by Pop Graffiti Artist Hijack Rare Street Art Limited Edition Artwork. 2022 Signed & Numbered Limited Edition of 50 Artwork Size 22.5x30 Silkscreen of Man With Broken Blue Umbrella Walking By Graffiti Wall. Hijack's "Protect the eARTh" serves as a profound reflection on the intersection of urban life and environmental consciousness. Crafted in 2022, this artwork, confined to a limited edition of 50 pieces, demonstrates the artist's knack for capturing the zeitgeist of our contemporary world. Spanning a canvas of 22.5x30 inches, the print communicates a tale both intimate and universal through its evocative imagery. A key component of the composition is the solitary figure, navigating an urban landscape with a broken blue umbrella. This umbrella, damaged yet still fulfilling its role, is emblematic of the Earth's resilience in the face of human-induced challenges. Its vibrant blue color, a symbol of the planet's vast waters and clear skies, contrasts starkly with the gritty, grayscale urban setting. The backdrop, an old graffiti wall, underscores the impermanence of human endeavors. Amidst the myriad of tags and markings, the words "Protect eARTh" and "I LOVE EARTH" stand out, echoing the piece's overarching theme. Through these seemingly random but carefully chosen scribbles, Hijack emphasizes the importance of cherishing and preserving our environment. "Protect the eARTh" is more than a captivating visual; it's an urgent plea. While it draws from the aesthetics and ethos of pop graffiti art, the piece transcends the genre, becoming a universal statement about our collective responsibility towards the planet. In this print, Hijack masterfully converges the immediacy of street art with a timeless message, creating a poignant reminder of the world's fragility and our role within it.

  • Protect the eARTh HPM 2 Hand-Embellished Silkscreen Print by Hijack

    Hijack Protect the eARTh HPM 2 Hand-Embellished Silkscreen Print by Hijack

    Protect the eARTh HPM 2 Hand-Embellished Limited Edition 11-Color Silkscreen & Acrylic Paint on Fine Art Paper by Artist Hijack Graffiti Street Pop Artwork. 2022 Signed 1 of 1 Unique HPM Hand Embellished Limited Edition of 10 One of a Kind Silkscreens Artwork Size 22.5x30 Custom Framed Silkscreen of Man With Broken Umbrella Walking By Graffiti Wall. A striking manifestation of contemporary street art, "Protect the eARTh HPM 2" by Hijack offers viewers a penetrating gaze into environmental consciousness, seamlessly woven into urban settings. The piece, crafted in 2022, showcases not only the artist's commitment to highlighting pressing global issues but also his refined expertise in blending different artistic mediums. At the heart of this artwork is a lone figure, attempting to navigate an urban expanse with a vivid, broken blue umbrella as his shield. The umbrella, fragmented yet distinctly prominent in its hue, symbolizes Earth's endurance amidst the adversities thrust upon it. The deep blue, reminiscent of the planet's boundless oceans and skies, stands in stark juxtaposition against the monochromatic city background. This backdrop, depicting a graffiti-laden wall, offers a raw depiction of urban decay, further accentuated by the figure's shadowy presence. Amid the chaotic jumble of spray paint and scribbles, certain inscriptions like "Protect eARTh" and "I LOVE EARTH" boldly emerge, acting as poignant reminders of the work's central theme. With "Protect the eARTh HPM 2", Hijack embarks on a quest to bridge the seemingly disparate worlds of urban decay and environmental conservation. This 1 of 1 unique hand-embellished edition, limited to just ten silkscreens, spans a canvas measuring 22.5x30 inches, inviting viewers to pause, reflect, and reconsider their relationship with the environment. Every brushstroke and silkscreen imprint echoes Hijack's signature style, culminating in a piece that is as thought-provoking as it is visually arresting.

A product of the year 2022, the AR-15 Lily, alongside its counterpart, the AK-47 Lotus, reflects Fairey's inspiration from the iconic Vietnam War protesters. These brave souls, in a symbolic gesture of peace, would insert flowers into the gun barrels of the National Guard, who were present to curtail their passionate calls for peace. Shepard Fairey, a renowned graffiti street artist, is known for intertwining pop culture, street art, and pressing social issues in his works, and this piece is no exception. His choice of a 4-color serigraph technique for this limited edition of 100 pieces exudes exclusivity and class.

Fairey’s perspective, as he expresses, is deeply pacifistic. His work is not just an artistic expression but a call for diplomacy and harmony, both on international terrains and domestic fronts. While he does not challenge the Second Amendment, his emphasis is on reducing unnecessary deaths due to gun violence. In a world where the lines between art and activism often blur, Fairey's commitment to supporting causes shines through.

"The AK-47 Lotus and AR-15 Lily large format serigraphs are inspired by Vietnam War protesters who would put flowers in the gun barrels of the National Guard who were brought in to suppress their protests for peace. I’m a pacifist, whether that means finding diplomatic solutions to prevent and avoid war internationally or finding diplomatic solutions to prevent and avoid gun violence at home. I’m not anti- Second Amendment, so trolls can calm down… I’m not interested in macho blathering, I just want fewer people to die unnecessarily. Brady United is doing good work preventing gun violence so they will receive a portion of proceeds from these two prints. Thanks for caring.⁠" -Shepard Fairey

We’re all exhausted by politics, but we must embrace the moment and take action because the threat is fundamental; our democracy could be gone in the blink of an eye." - Cleon Peterson The connection of Peterson with street art is also an aspect of his work worth mentioning. Even though he has created numerous murals all over the world, the artist himself does consider himself a street artist: “I don’t think of myself as a street artist or somebody that does work in that vein, but I love the idea of doing large paintings that confront people.”. This is revealing of his motivation to make his art as accessible as possible, as a way to invite the viewers to interact with it and confront the subjects the artist is interested in addressing.

We're all exhausted by politics, but we must embrace the moment and take action because the threat is fundamental; our democracy could be gone in the blink of an eye." - Cleon Peterson. Cleon Peterson's Stark Commentary in "The Devil Made Me Do It" In the stark dichotomy of black and red, Cleon Peterson's "The Devil Made Me Do It" delivers a powerful visual commentary on the socio-political climate surrounding the events of January 6th, marked by the infamous U.S. Capitol riots. This hand-pulled 2-color silkscreen print on hand-deckled 290gsm Coventry Rag Paper emerges as a piece of street pop art and a historical marker, capturing a moment of intense national upheaval. Art as a Reflection of Societal Turmoil Peterson's artwork, a limited edition of 300 signed and numbered pieces, transcends the traditional boundaries of pop art. It embodies the artist's response to a fraught political landscape, reacting to the tumultuous events that shook the foundations of American democracy. The imagery of a man seemingly dancing while overshadowed by demonic figures speaks to the "Faustian bargain," suggesting a dance with the devil that echoes the betrayals and manipulations of political figures and the public seduced by their rhetoric. The title, "The Devil Made Me Do It," offers an ironic twist on the age-old excuse for succumbing to temptations and making morally questionable choices. Peterson's choice to release these works as a direct response to political events positions the artwork within a tradition of artists who use their craft to document and critique the times they live in. The visual language used in this piece is reminiscent of street art's often aggressive and provocative style, meant to engage the public in public spaces. The Role of Street Pop Art in Political Discourse Cleon Peterson's work exemplifies the role of street pop art in political discourse. Street art has always had a voice in the political arena, often serving as a raw expression of the people, unfiltered and unmediated. Through his work, Peterson extends this tradition by creating a piece that is both a reaction to and reflection of the political unrest that has characterized recent times. With its bold, unapologetic lines and vibrant colors, silkscreen printing makes "The Devil Made Me Do It" a commanding presence. It is a testament to the artist's ability to distill complex political and social emotions into a single, impactful image. In the tradition of street pop art, which often involves taking art out of the galleries and into the streets, Peterson's piece is designed to resonate with a broad audience, its message clear and accessible to all who encounter it. "The Devil Made Me Do It" is more than just a piece of pop art; it is a visual essay on the state of contemporary politics, a call to action, and a reminder of the power of art to reflect and affect change. It is a bold statement within the discourse of street pop art and graffiti artwork, capturing a moment when the world watched as democracy appeared to hang in the balance. Cleon Peterson's voice, through his art, adds to the chorus of those who advocate for truth and democracy, and his work remains a powerful example of how art can engage with and influence the political landscape.

    Alternative Facts Hand-Pulled 4-Color Silkscreen Print on Speckletone Fine Art Paper by Artist Shepard Fairey Limited Edition Pop Art Artwork. 2022 Signed & Numbered Limited Edition of XXX Artwork Size 24x24 " We are at a critical moment for the preservation of democracy and non-partisan access to voting for all citizens of voting age. Between the Supreme Court, partisan gerrymandering shaping state legislatures, and the filibuster as a tool of obstruction in Congress, we are already facing tyranny by the minority. The forces dominating our politics do not reflect the values of most Americans. My print, Alternative Facts, addresses the mass confusion about truth that allows the parties who spread the big lie about the 2020 election (and many other lies) fomented the January 6th insurrection and are engaged in voter suppression and other anti-democracy schemes, to flourish unchecked. A portion of proceeds from Alternative Facts will benefit the ACLU in its legal fights against voter suppression and other attacks on the constitution." -Shepard Fairey Shepard Fairey's work is highly political and social, not only because he is incorporating politicians and slogans in it but more importantly because the artist is primarily interested in approaching as many people as possible, exhibiting his work in the covers of the books, which we read, in the music albums, to which we listen, and on the walls of the streets, where we walk. “If I put art in a daring spot, it’s more moving to the viewer and demonstrates my conviction.”, he says. After all, Fairey, in many cases, directly expresses his views on politics and society, whenever he is given the chance. For example, in the aftermath of the “Hope” poster, he commented the following: “Obama has had a really tough time, but there have been a lot of things that he's compromised on that I never would have expected. I mean, drones and domestic spying are the last things I would have thought [he'd support]”. The political aspect of his work can, also, be seen under the spectrum of Fairey’s activism and humanitarian activity. Many of his works have been created as part of activism campaigns or were sold to support causes relevant to the Arts, animal rights, poverty, medical research, the environment, etc. The artist, however, doesn’t identify himself as an activist: “People ask me if I’m an activist, and my answer is no. I’m an artist with a point of view, but I want to do my part to supplement activist causes I believe in. I feel fortunate to connect with people who find my imagery useful and help spread it.”

    Fragile Cargo AP Silkscreen Print by Shepard Fairey- OBEY Artist Proof Hand-Pulled Screen Print on Fine Art Paper Limited Edition Pop Street Art Artwork. AP Artist Proof 2022 Signed & AP Marked Original Run Limited Edition Artwork Size 18x24 Silkscreen Print of Elephant & Woman Face With Stylized Vintage Airline Ticket Influence. "This OBEY Fragile Cargo poster is a fusion of a few inspirations. The elephant and my wife Amanda meditating relate to the Buddhist philosophy that humans are part of nature, not above it, and must live in harmony with nature. The phrase "Rise Above" references transcendence but is also one of my favorite Black Flag songs. The graphic elements also reference the aesthetics of travel tags and tickets, which present a dichotomy… travel is great for broadening cultural perspective, but it has a heavy carbon impact. Karma asks us to consider the benefits and consequences of our actions. All of my prints are printed on recycled or sustainable paper. A portion of the proceeds from this print will benefit Greenpeace to support their work to enhance environmental protections and combat climate change." -Shepard Fairey. Delving into pop and street art, the "Fragile Cargo AP" silkscreen print by renowned artist Shepard Fairey is a testament to the dynamic confluence of art, philosophy, and environmental consciousness. Hand-pulled and crafted meticulously on fine art paper, this limited edition artist proof from 2022 manifests an intricate fusion of inspiration sources. The composition, with its arresting visuals of an elephant juxtaposed with the serene face of Fairey's wife, Amanda, draws heavily from Buddhist philosophy. The art underscores the interdependence of humanity and nature, emphasizing the belief that humans do not preside over nature but are inherently a part of it. This intricate blend of artistic expression with philosophical musings is a hallmark of Fairey's work. The term "Rise Above," embedded within the artwork, serves a dual purpose. While it signals transcendence and aligns with the broader philosophical underpinnings of the print, it is also an homage to one of Fairey's favorite songs by Black Flag, a classic American punk rock band. Simultaneously, the design elements, reminiscent of travel tags and vintage airline tickets, invoke a reflection on the complexities of modern travel. The allure of travel, which offers an enriched cultural perspective, is weighed against its environmental impact, specifically the carbon footprint associated with it. Echoing this ecological consciousness, Fairey ensures all his prints are produced on recycled or sustainably sourced paper. Beyond this, a portion of the proceeds from the sale of "Fragile Cargo AP" is dedicated to Greenpeace, highlighting Fairey's commitment to supporting environmental causes and combating the dire challenges of climate change. Through this artwork, Shepard Fairey weaves an intricate tapestry of visual splendor, philosophical depth, and environmental advocacy, reaffirming his position as a luminary in pop and street art.

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.
