Arty-Fact: In 2008, Shepard Fairey was approached by Penguin Books (UK) to do his take on the cover art for the literary classics, “1984″ and “Animal Farm”. Being that both books were inspirational and favorites of [the artist], this was a no brainer. When the books, with the covers, were released Penguin Books did a promotion selling the books with a cover art print set.

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
