    Shepard Fairey- OBEY Legislative Influence For Sale AP Silkscreen Print by Shepard Fairey- OBEY

    Legislative Influence For Sale AP Artist Proof 2-Color Hand-Pulled Limited Edition Silkscreen Print on Fine Art Paper by Shepard Fairey Rare Street Art OBEY Pop Artwork Artist. AP Artist Proof 2011 Signed & Marked AP Artwork Size 18x24 Silkscreen Democrat Propaganda Print of United States President Ronald Regan Holding Sign That Reads "Legislative Influence For Sale" like one side is innocent. "Legislative Influence For Sale AP Artist Proof" stands as a testament to the profound intersection of politics, pop art, and street aesthetics, epitomizing the essence of the genre through the lens of Shepard Fairey, a defining figure in the contemporary street art scene. Created in 2011, this 2-color, hand-pulled limited edition silkscreen print on fine art paper captures not just the vibrancy and rawness of Fairey's visual language, but also a poignant commentary on the nature of political power and influence in the United States. Marked by its emblematic use of stark contrasts, the print features a depiction of the 40th United States President, Ronald Reagan, clutching a sign with the audacious declaration "Legislative Influence For Sale". Such a visual rhetoric draws attention to the controversial claims about money's role in shaping political outcomes, highlighting the nuances of the relationship between governance and monetary interests. At the same time, by juxtaposing Reagan – who often stands as a symbol of conservative ideals – with a sign suggesting political malfeasance, Fairey challenges the viewer to question and confront their preconceived notions about innocence and guilt in the political arena. In context, Shepard Fairey's artwork – often released under the OBEY moniker – has continually been at the vanguard of pushing the boundaries of street art, evolving it from mere visual spectacle to a medium that communicates pressing societal messages. This piece is no exception. Merging the populist overtones of street art with the iconographic representation reminiscent of pop art, Fairey's "Legislative Influence For Sale AP Artist Proof" is more than just an artwork. It's an embodiment of a time, a statement, and a call to awareness in a world where art and activism seamlessly intersect.

  • Resist Colonialism Silkscreen Print by Ernesto Yerena Montejano- Hecho Con Ganas

    Ernesto Yerena Montejano- Hecho Con Ganas Resist Colonialism Silkscreen Print by Ernesto Yerena Montejano- Hecho Con Ganas

    Resist Colonialism 2-Color Hand-Pulled Limited Edition Silkscreen Print on Fine Art Paper by Ernesto Yerena Montejano (Hecho Con Ganas) Famous Mexican American Pop Artwork Artist. 2019 Signed & Numbered Limited Edition of 100 Size 18x24 "Resist Colonialism" is a commanding visual statement by Ernesto Yerena Montejano, a name synonymous with vibrant expressions of cultural identity and political activism within the contemporary art scene. This 2-color hand-pulled limited edition silkscreen print, produced under his studio label Hecho Con Ganas, captures the essence of resistance against colonial powers and their historical narratives. Created in 2019, it is a testament to Yerena Montejano's dedication to fusing art with social commentary. The artwork, sized at 18x24 inches, is a limited edition with only 100 signed and numbered pieces, adding an exclusive aspect to its acquisition. The artist's Mexican-American heritage profoundly influences the imagery and themes present in his works, and "Resist Colonialism" is no exception. The stark contrast of the red and black ink, a hallmark of silkscreen printing, resonates with the simplicity yet power of revolutionary posters, echoing the visual language of protest and propaganda throughout history. Yerena Montejano's choice of symbols, juxtaposing a pirate ship bearing both the emblems of hazardous material and the iconic skull and crossbones, underscores the danger and death associated with colonial conquests. The backdrop, an unyielding red circle, could be interpreted as a reference to the rising sun, symbolizing a new dawn of awareness and opposition to colonialism. The inclusion of the raised fist, a universal sign of solidarity and resistance, further amplifies the print’s message, urging onlookers to acknowledge past transgressions and take a stand against the lingering effects of colonialism. This piece of art resonates within the pop art, street art, and graffiti art movements due to its accessible yet poignant visual language. It uses the aesthetics everyday in these art forms to engage the public discourse on decolonization and indigenous rights. As with many of his works, Yerena Montejano's "Resist Colonialism" print is not just a piece of art to be admired for its aesthetic merits but also serves as a mobilizing agent that encourages viewers to reflect on complex socio-political issues. His ability to distill fervent political messaging into compelling graphic art has cemented his status as a crucial voice in the conversation about identity, culture, and activism within the art world.

Thanks.” -Ernesto Yerena The realm of contemporary art has often been a platform for political expression, especially in genres like pop art, street art, and graffiti art. One striking example that stands out from recent times is the "Vota! Alto Al Fascismo" artwork, a hand-pulled 4-color silkscreen print on fine art paper. This piece is the brainchild of two phenomenal artists, Shepard Fairey of the Obey fame, and Ernesto Yerena Montejano from Hecho Con Ganas. Both artists are renowned for their bold stances and vibrant portrayals of socio-political issues, and this particular piece showcases their combined brilliance. Released in 2020, the artwork is not just a statement piece but a testament to the urgency and significance of the message it conveys. Limited to an edition of 450, each artwork is meticulously signed by both Shepard and Ernesto, indicating their personal commitment to the cause it represents.

Drawing inspiration from a decade-old "We Are Human" poster, this modern rendition emphasizes the importance of voting and the dire need to halt the rise of fascism. Ernesto's comment further illustrates the core motive behind this collaboration, shedding light on the broader aim of disseminating the message across cities nationwide through posters and stickers. Engaging, evocative, and ever-relevant, the "Vota! Alto Al Fascismo" artwork seamlessly blends the boundaries between art and activism. As pop art and street art evolve, such pieces remain a testament to their profound impact on society, urging viewers to take action and be part of a larger movement.

  • Legislative Influence For Sale Silkscreen Print by Shepard Fairey- OBEY

    Shepard Fairey- OBEY Legislative Influence For Sale Silkscreen Print by Shepard Fairey- OBEY

    Legislative Influence For Sale 2-Color Hand-Pulled Limited Edition Silkscreen Print on Fine Art Paper by Shepard Fairey Rare Street Art OBEY Pop Artwork Artist. 2011 Signed & Numbered Limited Edition of 450 Artwork Size 18x24 Silkscreen Democrat Propaganda Print of United States President Ronald Regan Holding Sign That Reads "Legislative Influence For Sale" like one side is innocent. "Legislative Influence For Sale" is a potent visual commentary by the renowned street artist Shepard Fairey, who rose to global recognition under the moniker OBEY. This artwork, created in 2011, is a limited edition, hand-pulled silkscreen print on fine art paper, and its rarity is underscored by its exclusivity: only 450 signed and numbered copies exist. Measuring 18x24 inches, this piece is not just art; it's a socio-political statement that challenges viewers to confront the intricacies of power, politics, and influence. Fairey's choice of imagery is both bold and thought-provoking. He presents a depiction of the 40th United States President, Ronald Reagan, holding a sign that proclaims, "Legislative Influence For Sale." The audacious portrayal hints at the complex interplay of political agendas, financial influences, and lobbying, suggesting that even the highest office might not be immune to corruption or undue influence. Furthermore, the artist's clever juxtaposition of implying that one side might be innocent plays with the ambiguity of political righteousness, forcing a reflection upon the nuances of political morality. In the realms of pop art, street art, and graffiti, artists often hold a mirror to society, urging introspection, critique, and, at times, activism. Shepard Fairey's piece stands tall within this tradition. His deliberate use of the silkscreen medium, historically associated with both fine art (think Andy Warhol) and protest (recalling posters and flyers), emphasizes the blend of aesthetic beauty and powerful messaging. Through "Legislative Influence For Sale," Fairey not only cements his place in the pantheon of street art legends but also reignites essential conversations about democracy, integrity, and the potential pitfalls of unchecked power.

    Cleon Peterson Freedom/Prosperity At Any Price- Red Silkscreen Print by Cleon Peterson

    Freedom/Prosperity At Any Price- Red Limited Edition Hand Pulled 2-Color Screenprint Print on 290gsm Arches Rag Paper with Deckled Edges by Cleon Peterson Graffiti Street Artist Modern Pop Art. Hand-pulled 18 x 24" screenprint. Printed on 290gsm Arches Rag paper with deckled edges. Each print is signed and numbered. Limited edition of 125. The visuality of Cleon Peterson's work is based on a variety of influences, from ancient Greek pottery to comics, resulting in monochromacy and strong color symbolism. In more detail, the figures exist on multiple straight lines, something that, subsequently, creates the illusion that the artwork is divided in levels. The perspective and the impression of depth do moderately exist in the art of Peterson and, just like in Greek vases, the background space is usually left empty or slightly embellished.

  • 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

    Shepard Fairey- OBEY AK-47 Lotus- Large Format Serigraph Print by Shepard Fairey- OBEY

    AK-47 Lotus- Large Format Limited Edition Hand Pulled 4-Color Serigraph Print on Custom Cotton Coventry Rag Paper by Graffiti Street Artist Shepard Fairey. 2022 Signed & Numbered Limited Edition of 100 Artwork Size 30x41 In the rich tapestry of modern art, the AR-15 Lily serigraph by Shepard Fairey holds a distinct place. A contemporary masterpiece, this large-format print, sized at an impressive 30x41, is a testament to Fairey's impeccable craftsmanship and profound insight into social issues. 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. The print, meticulously crafted on Custom Cotton Coventry Rag Paper, evokes feelings of nostalgia and the age-old conflict between violence and peace. 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. A portion of the proceeds from this artwork, for instance, aids Brady United, an organization dedicated to preventing gun violence. The AR-15 Lily is not just a piece of art; it's a bold statement, a call for reflection, and a testament to Fairey’s unwavering commitment to promoting peace. "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

The number "99%" prominently displayed in the artwork resonates with the movement's message, which protested against economic inequality and the disproportionate power of the wealthiest 1% of the population. Fairey's choice of speckle-tone paper adds an organic feel to the work, suggesting the grassroots nature of the protests.

    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

    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.”

    Flush Giclee Print by Ron English Artwork Limited Edition Print on Fine Art Paper Graffiti Pop Street Artist. 2022 Signed & Numbered Limited Edition of 30 Artwork Size 37x25 Uncle Scam Ad Flag Giclee Print is a work of art by Ron English, a contemporary American artist known for his thought-provoking, often satirical and subversive street art, paintings, and sculptures. English is famous for creating art that highlights the absurdity of modern society, often blending elements of pop culture, advertising, and politics. In this particular piece, the artist critiques consumerism and the advertising industry by combining elements of the American flag with a caricature of Uncle Sam, who is transformed into "Uncle Scam." The term "Uncle Scam" refers to the idea that the advertising industry often manipulates consumers and promotes excessive materialism, which can be detrimental to society as a whole. A giclee print is a high-quality digital printing method that is capable of producing vivid and detailed reproductions of artwork. This process uses specialized inkjet printers and archival-quality inks, which are applied to various substrates, such as canvas or fine art paper, to create a long-lasting and visually appealing print. The result is a reproduction that retains the original artwork's colors and details, making it a popular choice for artists and collectors alike.

    Bias by Numbers- Large Format 30X42 4-Color Hand-Pulled Limited Edition Silkscreen Print on Fine Speckletone Art Paper by Shepard Fairey Rare Street Art OBEY Pop Artwork Artist. Signed & Numbered, Bias by Numbers 30 inches by 42 inches Edition of 89 June 3, 2019 “Bias by Numbers” addresses racial bias in policing, criminal justice, and media culture. Racial bias in policing and criminal justice has a long history, including stats like – black people being five times more likely to be stopped and searched than white people, and four times more likely to be subjected to unnecessary use of force, or four times more likely to be killed by the police when unarmed. The statistics revealing racial bias in prosecution and sentencing are compelling as well. Though recreational drug use is equally common in both predominantly black communities and predominantly white communities, convictions for drug possession are almost six times higher for blacks. Blacks frequently receive longer prison sentences than whites contributing to African Americans being incarcerated at more than five times the rate of whites.

    Shepard Fairey- OBEY Idiocracy Silkscreen Print by Shepard Fairey- OBEY

    Idiocracy Limited Edition 4-Color Hand-Pulled Silkscreen Print on Fine Art Paper by Shepard Fairey, Graffiti Street Artist Modern Pop Art. 2016 Signed & Numbered Limited Edition of 550 Artwork Size 18x24 Silkscreen Print "I’ve always felt that art, entertainment, and humor can be the best delivery vehicles for social commentary, so I love the way humor is used in “Idiocracy” to make the social critique more digestible. The movie is a harsh but necessary indictment of the anti-intellectual culture and politics that seem to become the norm more and more everyday. The film is great in a cautionary way and has an enjoyable irony being a somewhat low-brow piece of entertainment about the perils of succumbing to a cultural rejection of anything intellectual or high-brow. In other words, the genius of the film is that it may actually get through to the audience it should reach, rather than just preaching to the intellectual elite" -Shepard Fairey- OBEY Shepard Fairey's "Idiocracy" limited edition print encapsulates the convergence of pop culture and social critique through the lens of contemporary art. Renowned for his subversive street art and graphic designs, Fairey extends his canvas to fine art paper in this 2016 artwork, limited to 550 signed and numbered pieces. The 18x24 silkscreen print features a four-color palette and is a tangible expression of Fairey’s dedication to using art as a medium for commentary on societal issues. Drawing inspiration from Mike Judge's satirical film "Idiocracy," Fairey's print is not only a visual tribute but also a critique of the film’s themes—depicting the troubling rise of anti-intellectualism and the cultural dismissal of enlightenment and sophistication. Fairey himself praises the film's use of humor to present its social criticism in a more palatable form, creating a space for reflection rather than alienation. His artwork captures the film’s ironic humor, using a brain under the guise of a vending machine product—emblematic of commodification and the oversimplification of complex ideas. This print, like many of Fairey’s works, is imbued with a sense of urgency and a call to awareness. It encapsulates the artist's view that the realms of art, humor, and entertainment can effectively intersect to deliver powerful messages about the current state of society. Fairey’s "Idiocracy" is not merely a piece to be admired for its aesthetic appeal, but a statement piece that encapsulates the pressing cultural narrative around the value of intelligence and the dangers of its rejection in public discourse. The visual elements of the print—the juxtaposition of a brain with a hand grenade, the stark and commanding typography, and the bold colors—are characteristic of Fairey's style. They are employed here not only to draw the eye but also to provoke thought, embodying the essence of graffiti and street art as tools for social engagement. In a culture increasingly leaning towards anti-intellectual sentiment, Fairey’s "Idiocracy" stands as a critical beacon in modern pop art, reminding viewers of the power of art as a reflective and transformative force.

    AR-15 Lily- Large Format Limited Edition Hand Pulled 4-Color Serigraph Print on Custom Cotton Coventry Rag Paper by Graffiti Street Artist Shepard Fairey. 2022 Signed & Numbered Limited Edition of 100 Artwork Size 30x41 In the rich tapestry of modern art, the AR-15 Lily serigraph by Shepard Fairey holds a distinct place. A contemporary masterpiece, this large-format print, sized at an impressive 30x41, is a testament to Fairey's impeccable craftsmanship and profound insight into social issues. 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. The print, meticulously crafted on Custom Cotton Coventry Rag Paper, evokes feelings of nostalgia and the age-old conflict between violence and peace. 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. A portion of the proceeds from this artwork, for instance, aids Brady United, an organization dedicated to preventing gun violence. The AR-15 Lily is not just a piece of art; it's a bold statement, a call for reflection, and a testament to Fairey’s unwavering commitment to promoting peace. "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

There is a conspicuous absence of material necessities and a father. I don't know whether the father was working in a coal mine when the photograph was taken or had potentially died young because of the health risks of working under dangerous conditions, but it is clear that the family is struggling and lacking.

    Icarus Democracy 3-Color Hand-Pulled Limited Edition Silkscreen Print on Cream Speckle Tone Paper by Shepard Fairey Rare Street Art OBEY Pop Artwork Artist. 2022 Signed & Numbered Limited Edition of 500 Artwork Size 24x36 "Liberty and equality are principles most people value, but the challenge is to find the proper equilibrium between the two. Democracy is the mechanism our nation has used to balance the freedom and desires of the individual with policies that are fair and beneficial for the collective of society. Democracy requires dedicated maintenance. With the culture of the previous administration and many politicians undermining democracy itself, the folly of over-confidence about the guaranteed endurance of democracy will lead to potential disaster. The threat of fascism is very real. If you value democracy use your voice and your vote. I’d recommend reading Timothy Snyders “On Tyranny” to anyone who does not see the threats to democracy (and the principles it protects) as concerning. This print, “Icarus Democracy,” will also be available in person at Dallas Contemporary." -Shepard Fairey The Icarus Democracy Silkscreen Print is a piece of art created by Shepard Fairey, an American contemporary street artist, graphic designer, and activist. In the Icarus Democracy Silkscreen Print, Fairey uses the myth of Icarus to convey a message about democracy. In Greek mythology, Icarus is a figure who, along with his father Daedalus, escapes imprisonment using wings fashioned from feathers and wax. Despite being warned by his father, Icarus flies too close to the sun, causing the wax in his wings to melt and sending him plummeting into the sea. The story of Icarus is often interpreted as a cautionary tale about hubris and the perils of overconfidence or overreaching. Fairey's print likely uses the Icarus story to comment on the state of democracy, suggesting that democracies can also fall victim to hubris and overconfidence, resulting in negative consequences. Or maybe it's just fearmongering? The piece serves as a reminder of the importance of vigilance in preserving and protecting democratic values and institutions both ironically and literally. The artwork, like many of Fairey's pieces, is created using the silkscreen printing technique. This process involves using a screen to apply ink onto a surface, creating bold, vibrant images. The Icarus Democracy Silkscreen Print showcases Fairey's signature style, characterized by strong lines, bold colors, and iconic imagery, featuring portraiture & symbols that can be easily recognized and interpreted by a wide audience.

AP Artist Proof 2012 Signed & AP Marked Original Run Limited Edition Artwork Size 18x24 Silkscreen Print of Number 3 in A Gun Target Retnial With Phrase "IT TAKES THE SEDATION OF MILLIONS TO HOLD US BACK." "The "Sedation Of Millions" print is inspired by the title of my favorite Public Enemy album, "It Takes A Nation Of Millions To Hold Us Back." I think the biggest problem in America is the indifference and complacency about important issues that result from much of the population being perpetually hypnotized by conspicuous consumption, social media, entertainment, and self-medication. Using sedation and escapism for relief from the rat race might make us less aware(blissfully ignorant) but also less empowered to improve our role within the rat race… a vicious cycle of cause and effect." -Shepard Fairey The "Millions AP" silkscreen print by Shepard Fairey stands as a profound commentary on contemporary society through the lens of street pop art and graffiti artwork. As an Artist Proof from 2012, signed and marked by Fairey himself, this limited edition piece presents a powerful visual fused with a direct message characteristic of Fairey's thought-provoking style. Sized at 18x24, the print features the image of a gun target retinal, the number 3 prominently placed at its center, overlaid with the bold phrase "IT TAKES THE SEDATION OF MILLIONS TO HOLD US BACK." This artwork resonates with Fairey's ongoing exploration of control, power, and propaganda. The title and the thematic content pay homage to Public Enemy's album "It Takes A Nation Of Millions To Hold Us Back," channeling the spirit of resistance and the power of voice emblematic of the influential hip-hop group. Fairey's work challenges the viewer to consider the societal implications of complacency and the sedative effects of consumer culture, social media, and entertainment that contribute to a collective indifference toward critical issues. Shepard Fairey, renowned for his OBEY campaign and the iconic Obama "Hope" poster, consistently blurs the lines between fine art and street art, bringing forth discussions that encapsulate the ethos of both genres. The "Millions AP" silkscreen print serves not just as a piece of art but as a call to consciousness, urging a break from the "blissful ignorance" induced by escapism and advocating for empowerment through awareness and action. This work is a visual manifestation of Fairey's critique on the cyclical nature of societal sedation and the importance of awakening from it to enact change within the systems that govern daily life. In the broader scope of street pop art and graffiti, Fairey's "Millions AP" print encapsulates the essence of the medium's capacity to reflect and impact cultural dialogue. It is a testament to the potential of visual art as a medium for social commentary and a marker of the time in which it was created.

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.

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.

The Devil Made Me Do it & Divided We Stand, United We Fall were both made on January 6th in response to the Faustian bargain that Trump and his accomplices made in designing the coup. Today we find ourselves at a crossroads; now, more than ever, is the time we need to come together, take a stand, exercise our voices, and fight for Truth and Democracy. Hopefully, daylight will cast off this right-wing authoritarian spell. I see these posters as markers of a historical time and feel a duty within to share my views. 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. This brings up the following questions concerning the art of Peterson: “What is the meaning of it? Does it have a meaning after all? If yes, is this pre-determined by the artist? In order to better understand the way meaning is created in the world of Cleon Peterson, it is essential to, primarily, understand the way he perceives the media as a field of allegations, unbased rumors, suppositions and outright lies. In the world that the artist has created and, in correlation with our own reality, media is a tool of manipulation in the hands of politicians, leaving us helpless and in the mercy of an exploitative authoritarian system.

"Know Your Rights" is a commanding serigraph by Shepard Fairey, an artist who has cemented his place in the contemporary art scene through works that intertwine the ethos of street art with the aesthetic of modern pop art. This piece, released on August 21, 2014, is particularly noteworthy not only for its bold political message but also for the meticulous craftsmanship that goes into the production of each print. As an extensive format work, measuring an impressive 42 x 42 inches, it makes an indelible mark on the viewer, both through its scale and its strikingly stark one-color presentation on varnished 100% cotton rag archival paper, complete with hand-deckled edges. Shepard Fairey is renowned for blending fine art with the raw, in-your-face quality of street art and graffiti, and "Know Your Rights" is a prime example of this synthesis. The piece is anchored by a central image featuring an open book titled "THE FUTURE IS UNWRITTEN," encapsulating a message of empowerment and the potential for change. This is framed by laurels and a lit torch, evoking classic motifs that signify victory, knowledge, and enlightenment. The bordering texts "OBEY PROPAGANDA" and "KNOW YOUR RIGHTS" play into Fairey's recurring themes of propaganda, control, and the dissemination of information, urging the viewer to question authority and the narratives they are presented with. Each print in this limited edition is signed and numbered by Fairey, signifying its authenticity and connection to the artist's hand. The decision to use a one-color palette speaks to the work's assertive simplicity and Fairey's skill in using contrast and texture to convey depth and resonance. It's a technique that mirrors his street art roots, where messages must be given quickly and memorably. The serigraph process, a labor-intensive method of screen printing, ensures that each impression is of the highest quality, with the varnishing on the cotton rag paper adding a durable, tactile finish that also enhances the visual impact. "Know Your Rights" stands as a powerful statement in Fairey's oeuvre, reflecting his social and political advocacy rendered through his distinct pop art lens. This artwork resonates with the immediacy of street art and carries the weight of historical art traditions, bridging contemporary concerns with timeless expressions of resistance and hope.

In other words, the genius of the film is that it may actually get through to the audience it should reach, rather than just preaching to the intellectual elite" -Shepard Fairey- OBEY The "Idiocracy" AP (Artist Proof) silkscreen print by Shepard Fairey is a thought-provoking piece, symbolizing a potent blend of street art ingenuity with biting social commentary. Released as a limited edition in 2016, each piece in the series of 550 is hand-signed and numbered, affirming its exclusivity and value in the art community. Measuring 18x24 inches, this work is meticulously crafted through a 4-color hand-pulled silkscreen process onto fine art paper, a testament to Fairey’s dedication to quality and detail. Shepard Fairey, a trailblazer in the modern pop and street art scene, often infuses his work with social and political subtext. His "Idiocracy" print draws from the satirical film of the same name, utilizing its thematic core as a springboard for his own artistic expression. The movie's critique of a society in intellectual decline resonates with Fairey's own observations of contemporary culture, where anti-intellectualism is increasingly mainstream. Fairey's print channels the film’s irony, using the medium of pop art to comment on the potential dangers of a society that devalues knowledge and critical thinking. Fairey acknowledges the power of art, humor, and entertainment as catalysts for discussion and reflection on societal norms. By embedding these elements into his "Idiocracy" print, he not only captures the essence of the film's warning but also amplifies its message through his unique artistic lens. The print, which features the movie’s signature branding "Brawndo" and the tagline "It's got electrolytes!", satirically suggests that the brain craves not intellectual stimulation but rather a fictional beverage. This piece stands as a cultural artifact within the sphere of graffiti art, encapsulating the genre's inherent confrontation with social issues. Shepard Fairey's work is often characterized by its ability to transcend the boundaries of traditional art spaces, engaging with the public in environments that are unconventional yet visually impactful. The "Idiocracy" AP print continues this trend, marrying the rebellious spirit of street art with the evocative power of cinema to challenge viewers to consider the trajectory of cultural evolution.

I’ve long believed that protests in the streets are an essential tool for meaningful change because the passion, courage, and visceral force of the participants in a mass protest send a powerful message that they are fully committed to their cause! Ed Nachtrieb photographed many incredible moments of the 1989 Tiananmen Square protests. I’m honored to collaborate with Ed on a set of two images based on his documentation 30 years ago, especially because pro-democracy and human-rights protesters are in the streets of Hong Kong right now!

China then experienced a remarkable economic transformation. The idea: if people could get rich, they wouldn’t care so much about their freedoms. I think that’s a miscalculation. In Hong Kong today, ideas championed in 1989 have reappeared in a “Revolution of Our Time” in spite of the campaign to erase such “counter-revolutionary” thoughts from history. My images used in these prints are from energetic and optimistic moments of the pro-democracy movement. Victory was in the air. Progress seemed inevitable to those with arms outstretched and smiles beaming from their faces. Shepard’s work reflects their hopes and aspirations. The same ones that fortified those protesters in 1989 are now fuel for the passionate idealists on the streets today." -Edward Nachtrieb Shepard Fairey's "Revolution in Our Time" silkscreen print is a compelling narrative connecting past and present struggles for democracy and human rights. This piece, released in 2020, commemorates the 70th anniversary of Communist Party rule in China, juxtaposing the state's celebrations with the unyielding spirit of protest in Hong Kong. Fairey's collaboration with photographer Ed Nachtrieb is particularly significant, as it draws on images captured during the 1989 Tiananmen Square protests, thereby linking historical acts of resistance to contemporary movements. The artwork is a hand-pulled, 5-color print on cream speckletone fine art paper. With its size of 18x24 inches, the piece commands attention, demanding consideration not just as a visual expression but as a statement of solidarity. The edition is limited to 550 signed and numbered prints, making each a tangible artifact of political artistry. Fairey's design is charged with symbols of peace and resilience, as evidenced by the dove and the raised hand, iconic gestures of defiance and hope. Fairey is known for his stance that street protests are a crucial mechanism for social change, and this belief is visually encoded in the print. His art is not passive; it is an active participant in the dialogue around civil liberties and the collective voice of the people. "Revolution in Our Time" does more than commemorate an event; it propels the message of protest into the future, encouraging a reflection on the nature of authority and the power of the people's will. This limited edition print captures the essence of Shepard Fairey's approach to art as a form of rebellion and communication. It speaks to a universal yearning for freedom and justice, transcending borders and historical moments to unite viewers in a common cause. The work stands as a beacon to civic engagement's enduring relevance and visual art's impact in mobilizing and inspiring change within societies.

  • Wetland Powers Silkscreen Print by Shepard Fairey- OBEY

    Shepard Fairey- OBEY Wetland Powers Silkscreen Print by Shepard Fairey- OBEY

    Wetland Powers Silkscreen Print by Shepard Fairey- OBEY Hand-Pulled on Cream Speckletone Fine Art Paper Limited Edition Artwork Obey Pop Culture Artist. 2023 Signed & Numbered Limited Edition of 550 Artwork Size 18x24 Silkscreen Print "This Wetland Powers print examines the repercussions of a Supreme Court largely in the pockets of big oil. The government is supposed to create the greatest good for the greatest number of people. Still, the conservative justices in the current Supreme Court have put the agendas of big oil and wealthy property owners ahead of safe and clean water for the citizenry. The concept of "common assets"… no one owns resources like air and water and needs to be protected for the benefit of all, seems lost on many people in business and government. It is up to us as voters to elect representatives who put the needs of the citizens first. The Supreme Court makeup is always important to consider when voting for our president since the sitting president selects appointees for Supreme Court justices." -Shepard Fairey- OBEY Shepard Fairey's "Wetland Powers": A Statement in Street Pop Art In street pop art, Shepard Fairey stands as a figure of monumental influence; his work is often intertwined with solid socio-political messages.

Fairey's work is known for its layered visual language; every element serves a symbolic purpose, and "Wetland Powers" is no exception. Environmental Advocacy through Art In "Wetland Powers," Fairey addresses the contentious issue of land rights versus environmental protection, particularly highlighting the Supreme Court's role in shaping the fate of U.S. wetlands. The print serves as a commentary on the court's decisions that Fairey perceives as favoring corporate interests over public environmental health. Through this piece, Fairey expresses his belief in safeguarding common assets — air, water, and land — for the collective good. The Cultural Resonance of Fairey's Work Shepard Fairey's art has always resonated with a broad audience, and his Obey campaign has become a cultural phenomenon. With "Wetland Powers," Fairey continues to tap into the collective consciousness, using his art as a platform to advocate for ecological and social responsibility.

Shows a Hand Removing Laws From A Brief Case Infering Wall Street Money Regulations. "Jamie has been one of my biggest influences, and I'm honored that we worked on some collaborative images for the show. The new images deal with the mutual interests of Jamie and I, addressing the timeless problems of corruption and wealth inequality, but tie into the current themes of Occupy Wall Street and the dead end of fossil fuel consumption." -Shepard Fairey. Shepard Fairey and Jamie Reid: Art as Social Commentary In collaboration with Jamie Reid, the "Shoplifters Welcome Silkscreen Print" by Shepard Fairey is a powerful example of how street pop art and graffiti artwork can encapsulate and critique social and economic issues. This piece, a limited edition print, was created for the "Ragged Kingdom" exhibition from March 16 to April 14, 2012. It has become a significant work in street art for its bold political statement. The artwork depicts a hand removing a document labeled "MONEY" from a briefcase, a visual representation of deregulation, particularly within the context of Wall Street. This act is set against an offer for 'shoplifters,' a satirical nod to the notion that the financial elite operates under a different set of rules than the average person. The print's striking use of the phrase "THIS DECADE ONLY!" further emphasizes the timely nature of the message, suggesting a window of opportunity for unchecked financial behavior. Art Reflecting the Times: Occupy Wall Street and Beyond Shepard Fairey's statement about the collaboration with Jamie Reid highlights their shared focus on corruption and wealth inequality themes, notably echoed by the Occupy Wall Street movement. The movement, which started in 2011, brought widespread attention to these issues, and Fairey and Reid's work provided a visual commentary that resonated with the public sentiment of the time. The artwork not only represents the artists' perspectives but also serves as a historical marker of the socio-economic climate of the early 2010s. The "Shoplifters Welcome" print is a prime example of how street pop art and graffiti artwork can transcend the boundaries of traditional art by directly engaging with social commentary. Fairey, known for his provocative approach, and Reid, with his history of punk aesthetic, combine their styles to create a piece that is as aggressive as it is artistic. The limited edition nature of the print, signed and numbered by Fairey, adds to its allure as a collectible item, even as it challenges the structures of economic power. In creating this print, Fairey and Reid employ the aesthetic of propaganda, utilizing bold colors and stark contrasts to draw attention to their message. The choice of silkscreen printing, a technique closely associated with street art due to its mass production capabilities, further ties the work to the grassroots nature of its messages. It is a medium that allows the artwork to be disseminated widely, mirroring the spread of ideas central to movements like Occupy Wall Street. The "Shoplifters Welcome" print is a testament to the enduring power and relevance of street pop art and graffiti artwork in contemporary discourse. It is a reminder that art can be an intelligent tool for social critique, reflecting the issues of its time and prompting conversations that can lead to change. Through their collaborative efforts, Fairey and Reid have created more than just a visual piece; they have crafted a narrative that challenges viewers to consider the imagery's deeper implications and question the status quo.

  • Just Future Rising Silkscreen Print by Shepard Fairey- OBEY

    Shepard Fairey- OBEY Just Future Rising Silkscreen Print by Shepard Fairey- OBEY

    Just Future Rising 4-Color Hand-Pulled Limited Edition Silkscreen Print on Fine Speckletone Art Paper by Shepard Fairey Rare Street Art OBEY Pop Artwork Artist. 2021 Signed & Numbered, Just Future Rising 18 inches by 24 inches Edition of 450 June 23, 2021 "I created for the Time “VOTE” cover just before the 2020 election. At the time, I wanted to address the very unique situation we were in as a country as we faced the Covid-19 pandemic, unrest around police brutality and racial discrimination, voter suppression, and intense political division. We are still facing all of those things, though the development of Covid vaccines has significantly improved public safety and benefitted the fight to end the pandemic. In this illustration, the usually clear-cut rebel symbol of a bandana covering a face takes on a different meaning during Covid, becoming an emblem of safety, respect for one’s fellow citizens, and a sign that the wearer believes in science." -Shepard Fairey The "Just Future Rising" is a striking silkscreen print by Shepard Fairey, an artist renowned for his profound impact on street and pop art through the OBEY series. This limited edition artwork, measuring 18 by 24 inches, was released on June 23, 2021, in a numbered series of 450 pieces. Each print is hand-pulled, utilizing four colors on fine speckle tone paper, highlighting Fairey's signature style that merges art with social commentary. This piece is an extension of his engagement with contemporary issues, as it initially accompanied the Time magazine “VOTE” cover crafted in the lead-up to the 2020 election. Fairey's work consistently echoes themes of political activism and cultural critique, and "Just Future Rising" is a vivid representation of that ethos. The image reflects the turbulent climate of its creation: a nation grappling with the COVID-19 pandemic, societal upheaval stemming from racial injustice, the challenges to democracy through voter suppression, and deep-seated political polarization. In this print, the image of a woman with a bandana covering her face symbolizes a multifaceted narrative—transforming a traditional sign of rebellion into a symbol of safety and solidarity in the face of a public health crisis. The bandana, adorned with intricate patterns, carries a badge that reads "The Future is Unwritten," reinforcing the message that change is possible and the future is in the hands of the people. Fairey's choice to depict the bandana, a classic rebel icon, as a protective mask denotes a profound shift in cultural symbols due to the pandemic. It reflects a respect for science and an acknowledgment of the collective effort required to navigate the crisis. The artwork transcends mere aesthetics, embodying the message that caring for one's community and being considerate of public health are now acts of rebellion in their own right. This resonates deeply with the artist's long-standing commitment to using his craft to support social and political change. In the portfolio of Shepard Fairey's creations, "Just Future Rising" is not just a piece of pop artwork; it is a cultural artifact born out of an era defined by upheaval and a call to action. It stands as a reminder of the power of art to influence discourse, inspire action, and reflect the complexities of the human experience in times of adversity.

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.
