Lot description
Undoubtedly one of Fairey's most important prints, his images of Obama inspired and invigorated generations of voters. His "VOTE" print stands as a reminder to voters in the midst of the upcoming presidential elections.

Shepard Fairey has become a front runner in the street art environment and given a voice to American graffiti art, encapsulating a new chapter for the movement. Fairey’s art reached a new level of recognition in 2008, when his “HOPE” portrait of Barack Obama became the iconic image of the presidential campaign and helped inspire an unprecedented political movement. As Shepard Fairey’s body of work reached its 20-year mark in 2009, the Institute of Contemporary Art (Boston, MA) honored him with a full-scale solo retrospective, which drew a record number of visitors for the museum. Entitled ‘Supply and Demand,’ the exhibition shares its name with Fairey’s career-chronicling book, now in its second edition (Gingko Press). The exhibition traveled to the Andy Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh and then moved to the Center for Contemporary Art in Cincinnati, OH. He recently had a sell-out show at Deitch Projects in New York, the last show to ever be held at this renowned gallery.
