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.
