    Details

    Shepard Fairey - better known by his psuedonym, Obey - is one of the most prolific contemporary graffiti artists in the US and a key defining figure of the street art movement, globally. Famed for his 2008 Obama ‘hope’ poster, his work is influenced by and informs a critique of both advertising and propaganda, featuring politically charged images of consumer culture in a graphic, retro aesthetic. His ‘ICA Retro Series’ draws on images from Soviet propaganda: an important legacy for Obey, representing the dawn of advertising and graphics tipping into the realm of art. With the familiar palette of red, black, and sepia-beige, ’Propaganda Engineering’ makes use of the dauntless graphic compositions characteristic of Soviet era art. A large star sits at the centre, the famous Andre the Giant face at its core, while a patterned wheel encircles it. Various icons surround the print and, in the bottom section, an engineering sketch of a bridge sits beside the word ‘Obey’ in large, black type. Obey’s work is powerful in its political drive and deft historical appropriation but, beyond all else, is always an aesthetic triumph, striking and beautiful to behold.
