ABOUT THE ART

"This Gears of Justice print is based on a retired stencil I made recently using my “Star Gear” as the central element. I designed the star gear in the late 90s as a recurrent motif in many of my constructivist and industrial-style pieces and an easy-to-apply stencil for the streets. I liked the gear as a symbol of empowerment and industriousness. I’ve always enjoyed the term industrious because, to me, it suggests clever ways of working that are productive even if the creator has far fewer resources than a powerful corporation. Perpetuating my earlier art on a very limited budget forced me to be industrious. I learned to appreciate the struggles of underdog individuals and small businesses competing with monopolistic corporations that often curry favor with the government. I began to realize that real justice requires leveling the playing field and questioning the extreme power of some while the system withholds power from others. I work regularly with an organization called Brave New Films that recognizes these power dynamics and fights for a more just world. They work on films promoting social justice and opposing fascism. Check out this BNF video demonstrating what Trump’s appointees think of him. A portion of proceeds from this print will support the work of Brave New Films."

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.
