ABOUT THE ART

"Warning Sign is based on an actual sign fabricated, printed, and installed on the street. From the beginning my art has been placed on the street to disrupt the typically one-sided relationship citizens have have with government signage and commercial graphics in public spaces. I consider anything that provokes a discussion about what we do and don’t agree with about existing conventions and systems as valuable for analysis and progress. The saying “don’t ignore the warning signs” was the inspiration for the title of this print. There are lots of warning signs I’d like people to consider and the ominous sky in the image suggests stormy weather ahead. I’m very concerned about the literal storms from global warming and environmental destruction, but also about the metaphorical storms threatening democracy itself. We may not all have identical visions for the future, but whatever your hopes are, apathy will leave the power in the hands of people you may not want dictating things."

-Shepard

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.
