Obama 'Change' poster artist infuriates gun advocates with his new work
new print associating gun owners with Satan. Claiming to be inspired by recent massacres, he created the image to pressure politicians into tightening gun control legislation.

Fairey, who is known for his iconic “HOPE” poster that he created during Barack Obama’s 2008 presidential campaign, has enraged gun advocates with his latest design. The newest print, which Fairey is selling for $150 a piece, depicts an AR15 rifle and the words “America – The Land Where God Saves & Satan Invests in Assault Weapons and High Capacity Magazines.”

The 43-year-old designer says recent mass shootings inspired him to create the image. In a blog post published on his website, Fairey promised that a portion of the proceeds from the print will be donated to a “common sense gun law advocacy group.”

He says that he’s not religious, but that he wanted to demonstrate the hypocrisy that he believes Americans exhibit by practicing Christianity while also carrying ‘Satan’s tools’ that end up being used in accidental deaths, homicides and suicides.

“I’m not a big fan of the absurd abundance of guns in the U.S…. 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’?” he writes.

“Anyway, if you claim to dig god, lay off of Satan’s tools… if you don’t believe in god, lay off of Satan’s tools!” Fairey adds. “We live in statistically the safest time in human history, so the idea one would need an assault weapon for self defense is ridiculous.”

He looks like a soft fucking faggot. I say we ban dicks from going up his ass and in his mouth. AIDS kills more people than rifles.

Re: Obama 'Change' poster artist infuriates gun advocates with his new work
shepard fairey hahaha hes not a real artist


In January 2009, after Obama had won the election, Fairey's mixed-media stenciled portrait version of the image was acquired by the Smithsonian Institution for its National Portrait Gallery. Later in January 2009, the photograph on which Fairey based the poster was revealed: an April 2006 shot by former Associated Press freelance photographer Mannie Garcia. In response to claims by the Associated Press for compensation, Fairey sued for a declaratory judgment that his poster was a fair use of the original photograph. The parties settled out of court in January 2011, with details of the settlement remaining confidential.

On February 24, 2012, Fairey pleaded guilty in a New York federal court to destroying and fabricating documents during his legal battle with the Associated Press. Fairey had sued the news service in 2009 after it claimed that the famous poster was based on one of its photos. Fairey claimed that he used a different photograph for the poster. But he admitted that, in fact, he was wrong and tried to hide the error by destroying documents and manufacturing others, which is the source of the one count of criminal contempt to which he pleaded guilty.[4] In September, Fairey was sentenced to two years of probation, 300 hours of community service, and a fine of $25,000

I really love this: "common sense gun law advocacy group." No such thing! That statement is the epitome of a misnomer! This guy is a serious douche. Fairey is quite a fitting name for this waste of space.
