This weekend I was part of a girls shopping day. My mom, sister, daughter and I went to North Hampton, MA. If you haven’t been there, It’s a funky ole-hippie-college-town known for being very liberal, artsy and full of entertainment. It has great music venues, theater and deliciously diverse food.
We roamed the streets going in and out of the coolest boutiques. That’s when I ran across this poster. It’s by Shepard Fairey.
I LOVE his street art.
Most people know him for the Obama “Hope” poster, but I really came to know his work during the Women’s March.
The images were striking and unforgettable. It was amazing to see so much of his artwork brought to the streets by people who didn’t even know one another. Obviously his work has come to symbolize a movement.
MAKE ART NOT WAR. Man does that not sum up the times.
So as a special gift to myself I bought and framed the poster. I used a funky plaid fabric I own and it looks awesome. Every day I am in my studio I will enjoy it.
I always say, tis’ the season to TREAT YOSELF! Hope yall’ find something special this holiday season :)
Love it, Mary! Merry Christmas!
