Shepard Fairey Auctions Exclusive HOPE Painting

17 07 2008

Shepard Fairey is one of the most revolutionary artists of this time. Always delivering beautiful imagery with a strong political meaning, he never ceases to amaze. The creator of one of the most potent political images in recent history – the OBAMA “HOPE” poster, the image found such immediate resonance with Obama supporters that it became ubiquitous throughout the primary campaign and across the web.  Now, at the request of Russell Simmons, Shepard has donated one of three fine art versions of the poster to the charity auction, Art For Life, an annual event which benefits Simmons’ Rush Philanthropic Arts Foundation.  Hope is being auctioned of for some serious greens. If you got the cash, make your bid here or lurk if you just want to see what it’s going for $$$!
