San Francisco Bay Area Graffiti

Obey Obama

Everyone is probably familiar with the Obama "Hope" Poster. It was created by Shepard Fairey.

http://obeygiant.com/headlines/obama

Also created by Shepard is the "Obey Giant" poster campaign.

"Andre the Giant Has a Posse is a street art campaign based on a design by Shepard Fairey created in 1986 in Providence, Rhode Island. Distributed by the skater community, the Andre stickers began showing up in many cities across the U.S.A." – Wikipedia.

Was this "Obey Obama" created by Sheaprd Fairey? Or is it another street artist using Fairey's work to create a new message?

And most interesting the way you are telling it, is the whole culture around street art - even renowned artists and distribution channels.
brilliant. in my opinion, Obama is like baroque art smile
