Juxtapoz // Wednesday, August 20, 2008
Fine artist David Choe (Juxtapoz cover #72) is the latest artist to partner with Upper Playground to produce not one, but two Barack Obama prints. Choe has designed and produced apparel, adidas sneakers, comic books, movie posters, album covers, fine art books and toys, among many other projects.
David Choe’s Barack Obama posters are part of an ongoing series from Upper Playground of artist collaborations in support of Barack Obama's presidential campaign. Upper Playground has endorsed Obama's campaign by creating posters featuring artwork from Grotesk, The Date Farmers, Munk One, Ron English, Alex Pardee, Morning Breath, Mac, Sam Flores and Mear One, in addition to printing t-shirts with Shepard Fairey's Obama graphics to help support the campaign.
There were only 200 prints made, which are signed and numbered of each design, and each poster retails for $200. The limited-edition 18"x24" prints are available exclusively online: here (poster seen above) and the other (not shown) is available right here.
All proceeds from the sales of the posters will go directly to creating more campaign t-shirts, posters, and stickers by other artists in support of Obama's bid for President.
Please note: the prints will not ship until October 15, 2008.
