“The real message behind most of my work is ‘question everything’.”- Shepard Fairey
Obey Lotus Crescent - White and Gold is a signed limited edition Silkscreen print on paper with Diamond Dust. Shepard Fairey began his career in 1989 with his ‘Obey’ giant sticker campaign. Perhaps best known for his iconic Barack Obama ‘Hope’ election campaign poster, of which Obama said ‘encouraged Americans to believe they can change the status-quo,’ Shepard Fairey is influenced by a critique of both advertising and propaganda posters.
Having worked for a number of years as a graphic designer, Shepard Fairey’s work combines elements of graffiti, pop art, business art, appropriation art and Marxist theory.
