ABOUT THE ART
“OBEY Diamond Flower Round” is an open flower, a symbol of positive growth, surrounded by graphic vines and geometric framework. The graphic resolution of the elements in this image is meant to encourage harmony. I frequently use visual problem-solving, finding harmony and balance with visual elements as a guide for how problems in the wider world can be approached with every variable for resolution taken into consideration.
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.
