Designed as protest posters for President Trump’s inauguration and commissioned by the Amplifier Foundation, Shepard Fairey’s ‘We the People’ series emphasizes the ideals of equality, justice, and freedom through portraits of Muslim-, African- and Latino-Americans in a patriotic color palette. “It’s really about making sure that people remember that ‘we the people’ means everyone,” says Fairey, “…to find their common humanity, and look beyond maybe one narrow definition of what it means to be American.”

About Shepard Fairey

Shephard Fairey (American, b. 1970) is a contemporary artist and graphic designer who routinely uses his art to comment on the political and social issues of the day. Predominantly executed in a palette of black, cream, and red, Fairey’s prints and murals often feature dystopian and propagandist elements, along with his signature “Obey” trademark. In 2008, he released an image of Barack Obama with the slogan “HOPE,” which subsequently became an icon of Obama’s presidential campaign and propelled Fairey to national recognition. His work is included in the permanent collections of numerous institutions, including the Smithsonian’s National Portrait Gallery, the Victoria & Albert Museum, and the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, and has been exhibited at Galerie Itinerrance, Paris; the Moscow Museum of Art; and Pace Gallery, New York. His murals are also featured on buildings and streets worldwide.
