Artists for Obama

One of the things I really like about the Obama campaign is the way artists of various types have embraced it and used it as inspiration to create works of art. One of the latest that I like is above. It is a piece by David Choe, a fine artists who has designed and produced apparel, comic books, movie posters, album covers, fine art books and toys, among many other projects.

David Choe's Barack Obama poster is part of an ongoing series from Upper Playground of artist collaborations in support of Barack Obama's presidential campaign. Upper Playground has endorsed Obama's campaign by creating posters featuring artwork from Grotesk, The Date Farmers, Munk One, Ron English, Alex Pardee, Morning Breath, Mac, Sam Flores and Mear One, in addition to printing T-shirts with Shepard Fairey's Obama graphics to help support the campaign.

There were 200 prints made that are signed and numbered, and each poster retails for $200. The limited-edition 18"X24" print is available exclusively online.

All proceeds from the sales of the poster will go directly to creating more campaign t-shirts, posters, and stickers by other artists in support of Obama's bid for President.

Unfortunately, this great print is sold out, but thanks to the internet, we can all still see it, enjoy it and use it online...

I like this one by Brooklyn artist, Grotesk:
