They’ve done it again. The 008 and Upper Playground have collaborated with Brooklyn-based Morning Breath to create a new limited screen-print of the duo's portrait of Obama. This sweet Morning Breath poster is part of an ongoing series of artist collaborations in support of Barack Obama's presidential campaign.
The Morning Breath limited screen-print will be signed and numbered by the artists and are made at a limited quantity of 200. Because the poster is a pre-sale item, it won't ship until May 21th; however, all proceeds from the sales of the Morning Breath Obama posters will go directly to creating more campaign t-shirts, posters and stickers by other artists in support of Obama's bid for President.
Previously, Munk One's poster, also sold through Upper Playground, was used in a bus shelter visibility campaign throughout Philadelphia prior to the primary in Pennsylvania.
The 008 and Upper Playground are also pleased to announce an upcoming Independent Barack Obama Campaign Poster Art exhibition featuring all the artists who have contributed poster art for this Barack Obama 2008 campaign and many more still to be revealed!
In the past two months, with the support of The 008, Upper Playground endorsed Obama's campaign by creating posters featuring artwork from The Date Farmers, Mac, Sam Flores, and Munk One, as well as printing t-shirts with Shepard Fairey's Obama poster graphics to help support the grass roots campaign. The exhibition will feature work from the Upper Playground collaborations, as well as work from some of the biggest names in contemporary art that will soon announced. The 008 and Upper Playground will announce full details, exhibiting artists, and location in the next month. Make sure to cop your little bit of history at upperplayground.com now.
