A few months back, I mentioned the impressiveness (and popularity) of the Shepard Fairey Obama posters. Well, the race has changed a bit, and the political art has continued to flow in a way seemingly only Obama can influence. Upperplayground’s Date Farmers Obama poster did so well, they’re continuing, collaborating with 008 the movement to have Munk One and Sam Flores create two new posters.
Also interesting is a thank you note from Obama to Shepard Fairey. Crazy.
Rather than rewrite all of the details of the posters here, you can get more info at Upperplayground, Notcot, and Juxtapoz. So is this a result of cultural and artistic shifts? Is it truly Obama’s message and influence? A combination? Either way, it’s fascinating to see.
