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.

About the work
New Union Gallery

This image is loosely a sequel to the Peace Guard from 2008 and serves as a reminder that pushing for peace, ironically, requires a militant vigilance itself. I love the juxtaposition of seemingly contradictory symbols. Peace is victory without war. It's a good day when you don't have to use your A.K.!
