It's been announced that the latest poster design from graphic artist and OBEY (opens in new tab) founder Shepard Fairey will go on sale tomorrow morning at 10am (Pacific time).
The design entitled 'Sedation Pill (opens in new tab)' will be priced at $45. The screenprinted design measures in at 18in x 24in and will have an edition run of 450.
Inspired by the title of Shepard's favourite Public Enemy album 'It Takes A Nation Of Millions To Hold Us Back', the artist wants to focus on the "indifference and complacency about important issues that results from much of the population being perpetually hypnotized by conspicuous consumption, social media, entertainment, and self-medication".
The design is reminiscent of Shepard's earlier work, when he first emerged from the skateboarding scene. And there's no doubt that the limited-edition posters will be snapped up instantly.
