As tapped by Amplifier Foundation, a non-profit dedicated to supporting arts that lead to social change, artist Shepard Fairey, Ernesto Yerena, and Jessica Sabogalwas were asked to create work in support of the organization’s “We the People” campaign, whose goal was to create imagery rejecting the hate, fear and racism that surfaced during the 2016 presidential campaign.
Fairey was inspired to tap into his famous Obama “Hope” visual with three graphics made in collaboration with photographer Arlene Mejorado, imagery that saw a big presence at the Women’s March on January 21st.
Through Obey, the Obey x Mejorado “Defend Dignity” photoscreen graphic is now available for purchase as a t-shirt, along with a “Make America Smart Again” graphic. Visit Obey for details.
All profits will be donated to The Amplifier Foundation.
If you’re interested in The Amplifier Foundation’s “We the People” graphics, all five of them are available for free download or can be purchased as posters with a donation of at least $100. Click here for info.
