Silkscreen on Coventry Rag, Size 76 * 104 cm, Limited Edition - numbered, certified and signed

Proud Parents, 2019

With a deliberately vintage design, a couple cradles a bomb as if it were their child. However, their loving and optimistic attitude is surrounded by verbal puns that undermine their position and future. The family unit is consumed by a government that sponsors an absurd American scene, interested in investing more in the military rather than in education.
 On the occasion of her 30 years of activity, Shepard Fairey is republishing several of her major works in limited series under the name: "Facing the Giant: Three Decades of Dissent" This is how co-curator Pedro Alonzo explains the work: " Motivated by his long-standing interest in the use of art to encourage critical awareness and dissent, the artist co-opts the aesthetics of the currency and popular tropes of the middle class to render a dystopian vision. of the American family, created during George W. Bush's second presidential term, this print calls into question the nation's increasingly distorted national values ​​and the role of money in promoting this condition. "
