Street Artist and Activist Shepard Fairey Joins the NFT Ecosystem
Shepard Fairey is a well known street artist, illustrator, and activist who made a name for himself with his infamous “Andre the Giant Has a Posse” stickers. Fairey also created the iconic Obey images and the company as well that leverages the same name. Back in 2008, Fairey’s art went viral when he created his Barack Obama “Hope” poster.

Now the legendary artist who was featured in a film with the notorious Banksy is getting into the non-fungible token (NFT) collectibles industry. Fairey has teamed up with Verisart and the NFT marketplace Superrare in order to join a star-studded list of artists auctioning non-fungible token art pieces.
Fairey will join nine more leading artists dropping NFTs certified by Verisart such as Michael Joo, Neïl Beloufa, Mark Titchner, Petra Cortright, Jonathan Yeo, and more. Fairey’s NFT is called “Obey Ideal Power,” and the mural will be auctioned via Superrare on Monday, March 29. A fraction of the proceeds from Fairey’s NFT sale will be donated to the human rights nonprofit Amnesty International.
