Shepard Fairey Takes On OWS

Chances are you won’t catch President Obama down at Zuccotti Park wearing a Guy Fawkes mask. But artist Shepard Fairey’s latest poster offers an idea of what a protesting Obama might look like. The man behind the now-iconic “Hope” poster has tweaked the image both in support of Occupy Wall Street and in support of the president. “Mister President, we HOPE you’re on our side,” the poster says. “As flawed as the system is, I see Obama as a potential ally of the Occupy movement if the energy of the movement is perceived as constructive, not destructive," he wrote on his website, adding, "I still see Obama as the closest thing we have to ‘a man on the inside’ that we have presently.”
