We have no doubt that even among works by Banksy and KAWS, you will be drawn to the visually striking posters by American graphic designer and illustrator Shepard Fairey. You would immediately recognize his iconic and ubiquitous works, namely the “OBEY” campaign and his Barack Obama “Hope” poster. Charged with the mission of “manufacturing quality dissent,” Fairey clearly has a political bent that is quite relevant given the upcoming American election. Hurry over to me Collectors Room with our exclusive discount code “zombie” to check out the timely prints in person.
