This framed open edition print by OBEY (Shepard Fairey) titled 'Liberté, Egalité, Fraternité' is an offset lithograph on cream speckle tone paper, signed by the artist. (not numbered)
Fairey created the Liberté, Egalité, Fraternité art piece to show support for France after the Nov. 13, 2015 terror attacks which happened just before his Earth Crisis installation at the Eiffel Tower. The piece was a symbol of unity during a dark, tragic moment. Fairey was moved that the art and the message was inspiring for so many people in France, and beyond, and it has remained one of his most requested images since it was first created.
Framed size: 950 x 645mm
