One of the most prolific and well-respected graffiti artists in the USA, Shepard Fairey began in 1989 with his ‘Obey’ giant sticker campaign. It originally featured an image of the actor Andre the Giant and bore the slogan “Obey The Giant” but gradually grew more and more stylised into his current logo, becoming simply Obey. He is perhaps best known for his iconic Barack Obama ‘Hope’ election campaign poster, of which Obama said ‘encouraged Americans to believe they can change the status-quo,’ achieving the rare feat of becoming a visual emblem of a moment in history.


Shepard Fairey is influenced by and forms a critique of both advertising and propaganda posters. With his politically charged images of consumer culture part of collections around the world including the Victoria and Albert Museum he is one of today’s most prolific and influential street artists.


Born in 1970 Shepard Fairey came up with the tagline ‘Obey’ based on the idea that there are forces all around us that have agendas, but they are frequently unspoken. Having worked for a number of years as a graphic designer, Shepard Fairey’s work combines elements of graffiti, pop art, business art, appropriation art and Marxist theory.


Shepard Fairey became embroiled in a contentious lawsuit with the Associated Press over the use of a photograph used as a reference for the Obama portrait of which he says, his use of the image as a reference falls under the category of fair use. Even with his Obama piece now resident in the National Portrait Gallery (Washington) he famously states that even thinking about entering an art gallery makes him want to doze off.

Your Framing Options

Box framing is provided with all our online framing, creating a distance between the glass and your artwork, so no risk of ink transfer to the pane. it's the perfect, gallery grade choice for limited edition prints or original artworks.

Shadow float mounting is an option at our website, to give the appearance of an artwork floating within the frame. The mount – an archival foam core – creates depth too, by casting a shadow beneath the artwork. We highly recommend using a float mount when framing artwork with deckled (hand-torn) edges.

As always, all our materials are sustainable and archival to keep your artwork in mint condition and perfectly presented. Simply choose from our white or black float framing options, before adding to basket.

Glazing all our framing orders are shipped with glass. We take great care with packaging to protect your artwork.
