Artist Shepard Fairey and his Obama Art

I recently had the opportunity to meet and photograph artist Shepard Fairey, he's a contemporary artist, graphic designer and illustrator who created an amazing image of Senator Barack Obama that is used by the campaign. He even received a thank you letter from Sen. Obama saying"Your images have a profound effect on people, whether seen in a gallery or on a stop sign," Shepard created the popular "Obey" stickers/posters as well. More than 80,000 of Fairey's Obama posters and 150,000 postcard-size stickers have been placed by supporters. Shepard personally put up giant posters on a building in the Bowery in NYC as well as select other spots in the U.S.
