Street Art // Saturday, September 08, 2012
In 2008, Shepard Fairey’s “Hope” poster for Barack Obama’s presidential campaign became a symbol of inspiration and optimism. Yesterday, four years later in New York, Fairey received a sentence of two years probation and a $25,000 fine in federal court for his the same poster.
