ABOUT THE ART
"...Fairey’s message is one of antiwar and alternative capitalism. Resistance and respect are communicated through a worshipful treatment of the subjects.
Fairey's use of a strong central image of an iconic head evoke everything from postage stamps to revolutionary posters from the ’60s and ’70s.
Fairey’s poster children are counterculture heroes, from politicians and thinkers to rock stars like John Lennon, Martin Luther King, Tupac, Jimi Hendrix, Jam Master Jay and Johnny Cash"
