  • About the artwork

    Print Is In Pristine Condition With Four Sharp Corners And Has Been Stored Flat Since Purchase.

    Print is signed by both Shepard Fairey and Arlene Mejorado.

    A portion of the proceeds benefited Black Lives Matter and the Immigrant Bail Fund.

    "I had a great experience collaborating with photographer Arlene Mejorado on the Defend Dignity art for Amplifier's We The People campaign, so I was excited to work with her again on art for my show Damaged. Arlene shared some other photos including one of her friend William C. Anderson holding up a flower. I really liked the peaceful photo as a counter-point to the fear-mongering around Black Lives Matter and the subtle and overt racism toward African Americans in general. We need to move forward and embrace justice and equality rather than moving backward by stoking hate and division. Thanks for caring! – Shepard"

    "The portrait I made is of my friend William C. Anderson, a writer and activist from Birmingham, Alabama. He is the co-author of As Black as Resistance (AK Press.) In Anderson's words, We have to embrace our understanding of what's good for us rather than accept the terms issued by those who can't possibly comprehend our interests because they don't share our lived experiences.

    To me, embracing justice is having the power to define our destiny and build the world we want to live in; it is to be an accomplice to movements that push for liberation. Uprooting oppressive institutions that undermine people's well being is the inevitable means to the substantial evolution needed for real progress. Love, compassion, and self-determination are at the heart of justice and liberation both, which should flourish to our benefit. “

    - Arlene

Shepard Fairey (Obey)

Born in: 1970

United States

Famous artist

Shepard Fairey alias Obey was born in 1970 in Charleston, US.

He gets to know the universe of graphic design very early, at age 14, when he draws images to be printed on t-shirts and skateboards. He is influenced by the work of artists such as Andy Warhol or Russian artist Alexander Rodtchenko.

In the late 1980s, Obey and a group of friends from the Rhode Island School of Design create a series of stickers and posters with the figure of wrestler Andre the Giant and stick thousands of them on the walls of American cities. Andre the Giant Has a Posse is one of the first and most important "viral" Street Art campaigns, showing the ability and force of this new illegal means of expression.

His work became world famous during the U.S. presidential campaign in 2008, with the creation of the poster HOPE of Barack Obama that became an icon of the campaign. The Institute of contemporary art in Boston considered Obey as one of the best and most influential street artists of our time.
