In arguably the greatest contribution from the world of art to the world of politics, Shephard Fairey and his iconic designs catapulted Obama into the public consciousness in 2008. But public interest in his arresting images did not end there.
In the first week of December 2014, over 3,000 visitors came to see 60 of Fairey’s most iconic works on display in Shephard Fairey #OBEY at PAN – Palazzo delleArti in Naples. Now, this eponymous book immerses the reader in the intricately simplified popular images constitutive of the #OBEY exhibition.
The book documents the stylistic evolution of the architect of collective imagination in this comprehensive collection of his most distinctive iconography. Among the works is an exclusive large-scale canvas of “Obama Manifest Hope,” several iterations of Fairey’s signature design of Andre the Giant, and many other renowned pieces from private collections including the Drago collection.
All of these fascinating works are accompanied by insightful commentary from the curator of the exhibition, Massimo Sgroi along with introductions by Luigi de Magistris, Gaetano Daniele, Mrs. Barrose and Luca Giglio.
