See All The Stunning Images From Shepard Fairey's 'We The People' Series
In 2008, American artist Shepard Fairey designed the now-iconic 'Hope' poster, which featured Barack Obama before he was elected for his first term.
Now, Fairey is back, working to bring hope back into a very different administration, with another series of stunning images. Titled 'We The People," Fairey's latest collection is designed to protest President Donald Trump. The series takes its name from the opening line of the US constitution, and features images of African Americans, Muslims, Native Americans, and Hispanics. Each image runs with a slogan such as "Defend Dignity," or "Protect Each Other."
Commissioned by non-profit organization the Amplifier Foundation, the images are available for free download online, and the artist encourages people to print them, share them, pin them, and post them.
Speaking to CNN, Fairey described the inspiration behind the series: "It's really about making sure that people remember that 'we the people' means everyone, it means all the people," he said. "I think the campaigns were very divisive, more from one side than the other. But [it's] just reminding people to find their common humanity, and look beyond maybe one narrow definition of what it means to be American."
