I was checking out supertouchblog 

today and came upon the new face of Obama. 

 

 

Barack Obama enlisted the help of iconic artist Shepard Fairey, to create a poster for the campaign. Fairey has been well known for not only his “Obey” posters, but also for his anti-Bush art. So it’s fitting that he create a supportive poster for Obama. What’s kind of creepy, though, (and don’t get me wrong I’m all for Obama-but it has to be said) is that these posters are reminiscent of Mao and the Russian Socialist parties who all committed terrible atrocities… not people you would want to emulate in your campaign. Am I wrong?

“I wanted to make an art piece of Barack Obama because I thought an iconic portrait of him could symbolize and amplify the importance of his mission. I believe Obama will guide this country to a future where everyone can thrive and I should support him vigorously for the sake of my two young daughters. I have made art opposing the Iraq war for several years, and making art of Obama, who opposed the war from the start, is like making art for peace. I know I have an audience of young art fans and I’m delighted if I can encourage them to see the merits of Barack Obama.”
