Starting in 1989, Shepard Fairey became known for his stickers featuring Andre the Giant, and then for the Obey the Giant campaign. He became world famous by producing Obama’s campaign poster “Hope” in 2008. In France, his ‘Marianne’ portrait, tribute to the victims of Paris terrorist attacks, adorns the office of the French President, while protesters have revisited this image with a blinded Marianne.
