  • About the artwork

    Artwork sold in perfect condition

    John Lewis is a hero of mine because of his civil rights activism and dedication to justice throughout his life's work, both in the streets and in politics. Rep. Lewis worked as a grassroots organizer and was beaten by police while marching for racial equality, but also campaigned, was elected to congress, and served as a lawmaker for 40 years. John Lewis is a role model for using what I call "the inside/outside strategy," which entailed working in whatever zone necessary, outside the system or inside, and using his powers as an organizer and communicator to make the nation better.

    There is no better example of dedication to justice and civic engagement than Rep. John Lewis. With the election approaching and the rise of voter suppression strategies utilized by the Republicans, I felt an image of John Lewis reminding people that the hard-fought progress on voting rights and equality must be maintained vigilantly when threatened, would be an important message to send before Nov. 3. I also wanted to symbolically thank John Lewis for all his service to humanity.

    When John Lewis made his cancer diagnosis public, my friend & photographer, Steve Schapiro, suggested that we collaborate to honor him. I was thrilled by that idea and wrote a letter to John Lewis proposing the image of him. He gave the project his blessing but sadly passed away shortly before the art was completed. I know he was a humble person, but I hope he'd be proud that his actions have given inspiration and fuel to me and millions of others. Thanks for the fire, John Lewis!

Shepard Fairey (Obey)

United States Born in: 1970 Bestsellers Masterpieces

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.
