Shepard Fairey, ‘Michael Jordan’, 2009, EHC Fine Art: Essential Editions IV

A portrait by Shepard Fairey of basketball Hall Of Famer Michael Jordan, a player many consider the greatest of all time. His impact off the court was just as monumental as his basketball accomplishments. His iconic Air Jordan brand with Nike changed the way we look at branding, sneakers, and is still relevant to this day well after his retirement.

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.
