ABOUT THE ART

"This Disinformation Damage print is a comment on the corrosive effect of social media on politics. Politicians have always taken liberties with the truth, but credible news outlets would correct lies and hold politicians accountable to the truth before social media. On the other hand, social media allows users to parrot lies politicians tell and perpetuate those lies at lightning speed. The tactic of spreading lies through social media so quickly that credible journalists can’t keep up and correct the record has been used consistently by the right. Whatever lies are told will be parroted by a politician’s followers, who will also try to drown out any attempt to shed light on the truth. The only antidote to this chaos is for citizens to fact-check what they see and support credible journalism. Understanding the facts behind the issues confronting us is the only way to make wise decisions about policy. A portion of the proceeds from this print will support the work of Brave New Films, who create investigative content around serious social justice issues like voter suppression and racial bias. Thanks for caring!"

-Shepard Fairey

 

ABOUT THE ARTIST

Frank Shepard Fairey (born February 15, 1970) is an American contemporary graphic designer, and illustrator who emerged from the skateboarding scene. He first became known for his "Andre the Giant Has a Posse" (…OBEY…) sticker campaign, in which he appropriated images from the comedic supermarket tabloid Weekly World News. His work became more widely known in the 2008 U.S. presidential election, specifically his Barack Obama "Hope" poster.

The Institute of Contemporary Art, Boston calls him one of today's best known and most influential street artists. His work is included in the collections at The Smithsonian, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego, the National Portrait Gallery in Washington, and the Victoria and Albert Museum in London.
