ABOUT THE ART

"I have admired Pussy Riot and Nadya Tolokonnikova since I first saw their visually and sonically fierce performances, methods of protest, and messages of social justice. I’ve wanted to collaborate with Nadya and Pussy Riot for years because of our shared belief that art and performance are powerful tools of social change. Pussy Riot has been subjected to Putin’s brutality and methods of oppression firsthand, so their comments on Putin and the invasion of Ukraine are especially relevant. Putin’s Ashes is a beautiful, haunting, evocative video and music piece. In working on a visual for Nadya’s show at Jeffrey Deitch Gallery, I illustrated from video stills and imagery that Nadya provided in an attempt to encapsulate the powerful aesthetics of Pussy Riot and the narrative of the music video piece. I’m honored to collaborate with Nadya, who I think is one of the most fearless, articulate, and outspoken multi-media artists and activists working today."

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.
