Shepard Fairey Releases New "Scale Tipping" Print at Obey Giant

Shepard Fairey Releases New "Scale Tipping Print" at Obey Giant

Shepard Fairey has a new, politically-charged silkscreen print coming out soon called "Scale Tipping", with a portion of the proceeds being donated to RootStrikers.org and UnitedRepublic.org

This 18 x 24 inch screen print is a signed and numbered edition of 450.  On sale April 29th at 10 am and 2pm (PST) in Prints for only $55.


Check out Shepard's statement on the print, as well as the full artwork below. 


I have frequently talked about the many problems created by the current campaign finance structure. Corporate donations distort their influence in politics and corrupt our democracy. This is an issue not many Americans seem interested in, but it effects all Americans by insuring that corporate interests are put before the interests of the average person. Genuine democracy should guarantee that politicians create the greatest good for the greatest number of people, but that idea has eroded with the favors owed by politicians to corporations in exchange for their contributions. A portion of the proceeds from the “Scale Tipping Services” print will go to two organizations who are fighting  against political corruption, and for campaign finance reform. They are rootstrikers.org and unitedrepublic.org. These orgs are doing great work, so please support them! Thanks for caring.
