Ocotber 24th, 2015: Guided visit of Shepard Fairey's exibition "Fear"

Clockwise: Green Power, poster for the rock band Led Zeppelin,
2008's B.Obama's campaign poster & cover for Orwell's 1984.

A personal guided visit of the exhibition Obey by American artist Shepard Fairey. His name doesn't ring a bell? Well, you actually saw at least one of his work, the logo "Hope" for Obama's presidential campaign.

The artist uses as inspirational sources, the aesthetic of the dictatorship propaganda and/or the marketing images. Quite ironic a Democrat president of the federal republic of the USA was portrayed this way, isn' it.
