Shepard Fairey will release a new print titled “God Saves & Satan Invests” (detail above, in full below) for sale on his site,
with part of the proceeds from sales going to a group advocating for
gun control. “I’m not a big fan of the absurd abundance of guns in the
U.S.,” Fairey writes on his blog.
“I’m also perplexed by the claim of much of the nation to have
‘Christian values.’ If god tells us to love our neighbor and not to take
another human life, where do the assault weapons and piles of ammo fit
into these ‘Christian values’?” from artinfo.com
The artist continues to use unoriginal communist propaganda style images in his work to promote what he thinks hip culture will buy.
Shepard Fairey art style should show you how little Americans who buy his work know about the art used in communist propaganda poster.
He also seems to be pondering "Christian Values" while supporting a value that wants you become a victim.
no thanks Shepard Fairey
Shepard Fairey needs to read about the villagers who are fighting back against drug cartels and corrupt police. Mexican Villagers Fight Back
The villagers are not turning in there guns anytime soon.
