Shepard Fairey has joined George Clooney, Ted Kennedy and the surviving members of The Grateful Dead in supporting Barack Obama.
“I believe with great conviction that Barack Obama should be the next President,” said the artist otherwise known as Obey. “I feel that he is more a statesman than a politician. He was against the war when it was an unpopular position. Obama is for energy and environmental conservation. He is for healthcare reform.”
The proceeds from the 350 prints of Obama [above] are financing a state-wide poster campaign. Unfortunately they’ve already sold out, but you can always find an Obey/Obama tribute t-shirt here.
