More information about this artwork

Shepard Fairey is an American contemporary street artist, graphic designer and activist. Emerging from the skateboarding scene, the artist became an international phenomenon after his 1989 ‘Andre the Giant has a Posse’ sticker campaign, which evolved into the ‘Obey Giant’ campaign and subsequently into the renowned clothing brand Obey. His art is based on idealizing images bearing social critique and displayed in public spaces in the shape of posters, stickers, murals or prints. Shepard Fairey is also famous for his 2008 iconic and controversial ‘HOPE’ portrait supporting Barack Obama’s presidential candidacy, dubbed ‘the most efficacious American political illustration since ‘Uncle Sam Wants You’’.

Shepard Fairey’s work is held in the collections of The Smithsonian, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the Museum of Modern Art in New York City, the National Portrait Gallery in Washington, D.C., and the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, among others.
Hebru Brantley is an American artist best known for his trademark cast of empowered Afrofuturist superheroes. Drawing inspiration from street art, manga, comic books and pop art, the artist’s young characters reference fictional icons, such as Batman and Mickey Mouse, as well as his personal pop idols, such as Warhol or Basquiat. Dealing with themes of race, nostalgia, ambition, power and hope, Brantley’s heroes place all-powerful figures who represent people of color at the heart of a reinvented and empowering fictional narrative.

Ultra Lumen OG Sculpture is a limited-edition resin sculpture of one of Brantley’s beloved heroes, holding a LED light in an explorative pose. Recurrent throughout the artist’s oeuvre, the character’s oversized pilot goggles reference The Tuskegee Airmen, the first group of African American and Caribbean-born pilots who fought in WWII. Combining moments of reality and fantastical fiction, Brantley creates a ‘fragmented environment of make believe’. His work is collected by celebrities and A-list buyers such as Jay-Z, Beyoncé, LeBron James and Lenny Kravitz.
