Last Wednesday, July 2nd, our buddies at JetSet Graffiti filmed (above) the colorful display of Ron English’s Abraham Obama image at Boston’s Gallery XIV, which raised some questions about street versus fine art amongst the artsy crowd in Beantown.
Later that evening, exactly 232 years after the signing of the Declaration of Independence, JetSet went back behind the camera to film as the ghost of Abe Lincoln asserted his presidential vote by wheatpasting English’s Abraham Obama posters all over the city.
“The next morning the ‘crisis’ started as Gallery XIV began fielding tons of phone calls from concerned citizens, business owners, and even the Mayor’s office,” writes JetSet.
If you can’t get enough of Ron English’s Abraham Obama poster, you’re in luck because JetSet just made prints available right here. Cop yours and assert a lil’ independence today.
