Art & Politics

Obama by Shepard Fairey

Last week Shepard Fairey's Obama posters sold out in an L.A. minute and some of those $50 purchases are already selling on eBay for $800+. That's how the free market works, I guess, but it leaves me feeling about those guys the same way I feel about scalpers. For those of us who can't afford to fork out a grand, Fairey has made a black-and-white version [PDF] available, and he's advised takin' it to the streets.

Elsewhere, check out this Obama "Yes We Can " music video, and this one showing the making of "Fired Up, Ready to Go." More great Obama posters here and here and here. And here's one for Kucinich.

I'd link to some art inspired by the Republican candidates, but I can't find any. Well, there is this Huckabee song, but somehow I don't think it's truly an endorsement.
