Charleston native Shepard Fairey, along with Jennifer Gross, recently published a book called Art for Obama: Designing Manifest Hope and the Campaign for Change. Fairey’s iconic “Hope” image became the face of Barack Obama’s presidential campaign, but he wasn’t the only one inspired by the historic election. Art for Obama features 150 powerful images from the campaign, including collages, paintings, prints, and photos from artists like Ron English, Kwaku Alston, Maya Hayuk, Justin Hampton, and Shel Starkman. All profits from the book will be donated to Americans for the Arts. Are you more interested in Shepard Fairey than Obama? Check out his book OBEY: Supply & Demand – The Art of Shepard Fairey, published by Gingko Press in January.
