Ron English Obama Poster

In this election year it there is little debate as to who the streetwear world is supporting for next US President. It begs a few questions. First, do we not dress like Republicans? Are there no hardcore feminists amongst our ranks?

While several companies have made stance driven products, Upper Playground has been responsible for the most compelling. Their poster series, which features work from Sam Flores, Alex Pardee and Shepard Fairey, endorsing Barak Obama is some of the most inspired contemporary political art. The newest in the series comes from Ron English. He connects Obama to Lincoln, adding the famous beard to the Illinois senators features. The poster is available direct from Upper Playground in a limited run of 200. All posters are signed and numbered.
