Politically Charged: The Prints of Shepard Fairey 30 October–11 November 2020 • 12:00 PM EST • New York

S otheby’s is pleased to present Politically Charged: The Prints of Shepard Fairey, an online only sale featuring an extensive selection of prints by the famed contemporary street artist, graphic designer and activist Shepard Fairey.

For over 30 years, Fairey’s work has explored important themes including climate change, propaganda, political corruption and injustice, to name a few. His art not only asks viewers to question and contemplate their surroundings, but also serves as a call to action to take an active role in their society and their democracy. To change everything, we need everyone. As the US presidential election approaches, the message of Fairey’s art becomes increasingly imperative.



“I consider myself a patriot, not a nationalist… I believe in the potential of the nation to do good for its citizens and the world, and I will push to amend the system’s flaws and further the good policies… democracy is a privilege that must be maintained through action, which always means voting, and when necessary, means protesting in the streets.”
