Shepard Fairey Gives His Thoughts on Obama “Joker” Poster

August 10, 2009 · Print This Article

The L.A. Times’ Top of the Ticket blog asked Shepard Fairey what he thought of the Obama Joker posters that have appeared around the streets of L.A. and further proliferated online. Fairey makes it clear that while he doesn’t at all agree with the anonymous poster artist’s apparent right-wing political slant, he does give the perpetrator props for conveying the message concisely:

“”The artwork is great in that it gets a point across really quickly,” Fairey said. “The Joker is a sinister, evil character that can’t be trusted. And if they want to make that parallel with Obama — bam.”

Wait–shouldn’t that be
