All political art is propaganda (that is the point), but most political posters are bland, forgettable, wallpaper.... [Shepard Fairey] wanted to make posters that the cool cats would want. The 2008 Democratic primary season equivalent of the Che poster (with all that implies). More Mao, more right now.... The kind of poster that might sell on eBay, as a signed Fairey Obama recently did, for $5,900....

Yeah, sure! So here's another Amerikkka-hating, fund-raising "friend of Obama."
Shepard Fairey is the artist who designed the official fund-raising set of Obama : Hope / Change / Progress posters, like this one:
Fairey has a company ("Obey") that produces his own artwork, such as these.
See Fairey's website: http://www.thegiant.org/wiki/index.php?title=Category:Prints
Obama has written Fairey that he admires "the political messages involved in your work."
If Obama does win in November, I wouldn't be surprised if this guy becomes his administration's "Artist Laureate." Can you imagine him as the Artistic Director for the Inauguration ceremonies?
The Art of Politics ["Obey Obama"]
Shepard Fairey: Obey Obama [Obama's official poster-maker loves Stalin, Mao, etc.]
Obama's Posters: Message in the Image
A Style of Obama Poster Not Likely To Be Widely Imitated
A striaght up marxist artist and a straight up marxist politician. It’s obvious why the obamanation loves it.
What’s his name again? shepherd who?
The same kind of terrorists who support Obama did this:
Never apologize for them.
Never appease them.
Suited to the pages of Pravda, this guy may be working in the White House. Never thought I’d see the day.
We often refer to him as "TTNO" (The Tragically Named One)
Fairey stole two concepts from the movie THEY LIVE. Both of them are subliminal messages, one is OBEY, the other is THIS IS YOUR GOD.
And that is the Obama campaign in a nutshell. They hired this red dupe to give them a campaign that could be wheatpasted in public places overnight (even in Obama’s personal letter to Shepherd, he mentioned the power of seeing one of Fairey’s stickers on a stop sign).
Barack Obama: A Champion for Arts and Culture
A Platform In Support of the Arts
Create an Artist Corps: Barack Obama supports the creation of an "Artist Corps" of young artists trained to work in low-income schools and their communities. Studies in Chicago have demonstrated that test scores improved faster for students enrolled in low-income schools that link arts across the curriculum than scores for students in schools lacking such programs.
I assume this government funded "Artist Corps" Obama is going to create will be the ones drawing the pictures of the Glorious People's Tractor plowing the land ....
