To be fair, I thought these were still going to be $70 like the Vancouver ones.

Looks like they tried to trick the bots with the already sold out link.

Hopefully it worked, +1 for me

Image
The next print in the “Facing the Giant: Three Decades of Dissent” print series is “Arab Woman.” Here’s how co-curator Pedro Alonzo explains the work:⁠
Shepard Fairey created this image of an Arab woman three years after the start of the second Gulf War. The work is a response to the extreme anti-Islamic rhetoric of the time. With this piece, Fairey confronts the notion of collective blame directed against all Arabs. Fairey portrays her as a characteristically strong woman, who looks directly at the viewer, confidently but no menacingly. Her countenance is appealing and relatable, evoking a humanizing effect on a group of people that are often misrepresented as threatening. The artist intends to stimulate humanity and compassion, challenging preconceived notions about Muslims, otherwise perceived as the enemy. The floral design of Turkish origin is intended to subconsciously evoke a unified appreciation of beauty and function as a bridge between the West and the Middle East, a familiar form that brings us all together.

Arab Woman. Serigraph on Coventry Rag, 100% Cotton Custom Archival Paper with hand-deckled edges. 30 x 41 inches. Signed by Shepard Fairey. Numbered edition of 89. Comes with a certificate of authenticity. $900. A portion of proceeds will go to Human Rights Watch. Available Tuesday, August 20th @ 10 AM PDT at store.obeygiant.com/collections/prints. Max order: 1 per customer/household. *Orders are not guaranteed as demand is high and inventory is limited.* Multiple orders will be refunded. International customers are responsible for import fees due upon delivery.⁣ ALL SALES FINAL.
