Shepard Fairey Obey Lotus Diamond (White & Gold) showcases Obey’s (aka Shepard Fairey’s) irrepressible talent for graphic design. Famed for his ‘Andre the Giant Has a Posse’ sticker campaign in 1989, and his ‘Hope’ Obama poster for the 2008 US presidential candidacy, Obey has earned his place as one of the world’s most acclaimed contemporary street artists. ‘Obey Lotus Crescent White and Gold’ combines pattern and design in a palette of soft gold and cream. Channelling Buddhist iconography, the print balances lotus leaves against the curve of a crescent, while white lines radiate in the background like the rays of a rising sun. Even Andre the Giant makes his signature appearance, his face hidden in a small star at the centre of the composition. Finished with diamond dust, for a dazzling final touch.

A major figure of the contemporary street art movement, Shepard Fairey rose to prominence in the early 1990s with his “Andre the Giant Has a Posse” campaign, which distributed posters, stickers, and murals featuring the eponymous wrestler around Providence, Rhode Island. Fairey’s iconic 2008 “Hope” campaign poster for President Barack Obama encapsulates a number of the artist’s recurring concerns, including propaganda, portraiture, and political power. Fairey’s work, which has sold for six figures at auction, can be found in the collections of the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, and the National Portrait Gallery in Washington, D.C
