From The Giant: The Definitive Obey Giant Site
This print is believed to have been created for The Art of Elysium charity's Third Annual Black Tie gala of the same name, which was held Saturday, January 16, 2010. All further information about this print was gathered from an eBay auction in August, 2012.
From Look to the Stars:
Artist Shepard Fairey (creator of "Obey Giant" and the force behind the Obama "Hope" poster) is this year's visionary and will create all visual and conceptual aspects of the themed gala entitled "Heaven".
"When I was asked by The Art of Elysium to conceive my vision of heaven, I immediately thought of a world where creativity, compassion and connection are celebrated," he said. "I thought of humanity and nature existing in harmony; after all, humans are part of nature, not above nature, and connected to one another just the same. We need to look out for each other and understand how our actions impact others and the planet we inhabit."
