This is the rarest of the rare pictures by him as Obama was printed in vast numbers in various sizes etc , this is an ARTISTS PROOF , that came from Black Rat Press (gallery) in the arches of East London. They were the first gallery in England (Europe?) to show street / urban art as a serious fully fledged art form and supplied hundreds of prints to museums & worked closely with artists we all know and admire NOW , but often were unheard of when they started. Blek le Rat , Banksy , Nick Walker etc. I appeared on The Apprentice at their gallery when Pure Evil won his round for that team. One of the partners has now gone on to be half of Connor Brothers !!

It is signed in pencil on the right & AP by the artists hand on the left. You are welcome to inspect it in Brentwood – I’m closed Sunday , Monday & Thursdays.

It measures 24 x 18 inches (approx. 60.9 x 45.75 cm) and is the only example of this seminal work I can find on the market as Art Collectors , investors and Music fans all want it

The Artist

Shepard Fairey

Originally a skateboarder, Shepard Fairy came into the art world from the streets. As a contemporary graphic designer, illustrator, street artists and activist, his stickers, stencils, screen prints, illustrations, collages and works in wood and metal provide an authentic, inspiring and provocative voice. His aim with his art is to encourage the audience to question themselves, their environment and their assumptions – he wants to provoke a reaction. He first came to prominence with a sticker campaign, ‘Andre the Giant Has a Posse’, with images sourced from the tabloid publication, Weekly World News. He uses images from popular culture to hold up a mirror to the way his audience thinks, feels and consumes. Along with his partners Dave Kinsey and Philip DeWolff, he is a founder member of the BLK/MRKT Inc design studio, that supplies guerrilla marketing for organisations as diverse as Pepsi, Mozilla and Hasbro. He’s had exhibitions at several notable galleries, including: The National Portrait Gallery in Washington DC, the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts in Richmond and the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. One of his most renowned works is a poster he produced for Barak Obama’s 2008 presidential campaign with the word ‘Hope’ emblazoned on it.
