Shepard Fairey Pay Up or Shut Up Poster Release Details

Obey Giant will be releasing this new poster titled Pay Up or Shut Up this week.
We must fight the greed of the powerful and restore the basic fairness of our society and our democracy. The most crucial step in fighting against political corruption and forcing politicians to get back to creating the greatest good for the greatest number of people is to reform our current campaign finance structure. This piece is specifically making fun of the idea pushed by Citizens United that money is speech, but following that logic that means that the only speech listened to is the speech with big money behind it. Proceeds from the “Pay Up or Shut Up” print will go to two organizations who are fighting for campaign finance reform, they are and Represent.US. Represent.US created this excellent video depicting the problem of money in politics. This issue effects all of us, including YOU! Inform yourself. Thank you as always for caring.– Shepard
The poster is 18 x 24 inch screen print on cream speckletone paper.  Signed and numbered edition of 450.  A portion of the proceeds will benefit and Represent.US

On sale: Tuesday May 19, 2015 at a random time between 10am and 11am PST in PRINTS.

  1. Shepard Fairey's art is gorgeous, and his politics is tiresome. He doesn't want money out of politics. He wants the money spent by the people he disagrees with out of politics.

    1. I guess you did not read what he wrote or watch the video. He did not mention either party he said politicians which includes them all.

  2. This should be called "Pay Up AND Shut Up." I'll be tied up for an hour on election day, so... Pay Shep, don't vote!
