A celebrated street artist, graphic designer, activist, illustrator, musician and founder of streetwear brand OBEY Clothing, Fairey’s ideas and visions were initially shaped by skateboarding culture but deeply rooted in social activism. His multi-hyphenate creative approach blurs the lines between traditional and commercial art through form and content, e ectively communicating his brand of social critique via prints, murals, stickers and posters in public spaces. In 1989, Fairey created the André the Giant has a Posse sticker campaign, which became the foundation of his seminal ongoing OBEY series. In 2008, Fairey’s portrait of then-presidential candidate Barack Obama titled Hope was widely described as iconic and representative of Obama’s 2008 presidential campaign. His works are included in the collections of the Smithsonian in Washington, D.C., Victoria and Albert Museum in London, and LACMA.
