The Famous Obama Poster

Famous Obama Poster BullshitThis is the famous Obama poster from his 2008 presidential campaign... with... err... some small changes to make it better reflect reality. Personally I like this better than Shepard Fairey's poster, but perhaps I'm biased.

Gallery Notes: Close observers of this work will note the recurrent theme of "bullshit," which plays the role of a subtle leitmotif in this artist's depictions of Barack Obama. These early graphic works led to his later absurdist installation "The Presidential Crap Machine" which combined a converted industrial-strength snow-blower, brown-dyed snow, and continuous video loop of Obama speeches.
