ABOUT THE ART
The Radiant Lotus is part of a recent series of my works exploring round compositions. This print is inspired by the symbolism and beauty of the Lotus flower emanating positive energy, rendered with a graphic and geometric style. The Lotus is something beautiful that grows out of the mud. I see the Lotus as a metaphor for what is especially needed in this moment, an effort to lift ourselves out of the mud of political feuding and environmental irresponsibility in pursuit of harmony with each other and the planet.
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.
