Shepard Fairey on the idea behind the design:
I have frequently talked about the many problems created by the current campaign finance structure. Corporate donations distort their influence in politics and corrupt our democracy. This is an issue not many Americans seem interested in, but it affects all Americans by insuring that corporate interests are put before the interests of the average person. Genuine democracy should guarantee that politicians create the greatest good for the greatest number of people, but that idea has eroded with the favors owed by politicians to corporations in exchange for their contributions. A portion of the proceeds from the “Power Bidder” print will go to two organizations who are fighting against political corruption, and for campaign finance reform. They are rootstrikers.org and unitedrepublic.org. Check out their sites. These orgs are doing great work, so please support them! Thanks for caring. -Shepard
