Shepard Fairey: Protester of the Year

Urban art legend Shepard Fairey just did it again: After he designed the Obama cover for Time Magazine’s Person of the Year issue back in 2008, he also designed the latest cover which this year honors the Protester and features stories from the Arab Spring to the Occupy Wall Street movement.

In my eyes taking Shepard Fairey’s design was a good decision. I mean, who could be a better than someone who’s famous around the globe for a certain, eye-catching propaganda look and feel and who also started his career on the streets around the world with his subversive Obey campaign?!

Well done Mr. Fairey! And now make sure to watch this clip to get to know the reasons, why Time chose The Protester
