Shepard Fairey’s work engages with institutional authority, American nationalism and the undercurrents of counter culture. In this politically inspired image, the artist explores the graphic possibilities of the American flag as well as its power to both inspire passion and insight unity. —Courtesy of Heritage Auctions

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.
