UPPER PLAYGROUND PARTNERS WITH ARTIST JUSTIN BUA TO SUPPORT OBAMA
In an ongoing effort to secure Democratic hopeful Barack Obama’s presidential bid, fine artist Justin Bua is the latest artist to partner with Upper Playground to produce a Barack Obama print. Justin Bua has gained international acclaim with his raw depictions of urban street life, hip-hop, and jazz musicians. His posters are best-sellers in the US and Canadian college markets. Justin Bua’s Barack Obama posters are part of an ongoing series from Upper Playground of artist collaborations in support of Barack Obama’s presidential campaign. Upper Playground has endorsed Obama’s campaign by creating posters featuring artwork from David Choe, Grotesk, The Date Farmers, Munk One, Ron English, Alex Pardee, Morning Breath, Mac, Sam Flores and Mear One, in addition to printing T-shirts with Shepard Fairey’s Obama graphics to help support the campaign.
There are 200 prints made that are signed and numbered, and retail for $200. The limited-edition 18″ x 24″ print is available exclusively online. Please note: prints will not ship until October 8, 2008. All proceeds from the sales of the poster will go directly to creating more campaign t-shirts, posters, and stickers by other artists in support of Obama’s bid for President. Stay tuned to a new Upper Playground project in support of Barack Obama to be announced later this month.
Please Note: The305.Com will not publically endorse either candidate. The305.Com does not support Obama or McCain.
