Arty-Fact: “The Eye Alert poster is my response to the state of healthcare reform in the U.S. I’m disappointed that instead of focusing on saving lives and improving lives, healthcare reform is succumbing to corporate-fueled fear and disinformation. The healthcare industry is the largest in America, yet 30 million people —10% of our population — are left without the means to access medical care. We know that something needs to be done about our broken (or nonexistent) system, or costs will continue to skyrocket and more and more people will be left without access to healthcare. It’s a moral issue and a human rights issue, but it looks like the people who have stood up for it have been outvoted by corporations and their lobbyists. It’s a sad day in America.”

About Shepard Fairey

Expanding on the legacies of artists such as Keith Haring and Andy Warhol, Shepard Fairey’s practice disrupts the distinction between fine and commercial art. A major artist of the street art movement, Fairey rose to prominence in the early 1990s through the dispersion of posters, stickers, and murals, related to his Obey Giant campaign, which yielded an international cultural phenomenon. Fairey’s iconic poster of President Barack Obama was adopted as the official emblem associated with the presidential campaign and encapsulates a number of recurring concerns in the artist’s work, including propaganda, portraiture, and political power.

American, b. 1970, Charleston, South Carolina, based in Los Angeles, California
