Ornate Pattern

Shepard Fairey creates graphic art with social and political messages. His artworks incorporate recurring patterns, alluding to his campaign against the repetitive images that saturate consumerist society. His signature image depicts the stylised face of the French wrestler Andre the Giant.

Here in Ornate Pattern, Andre appears in the centre of the work, placed over a peace symbol. This element remains static, while the dazzlingly intricate surrounding patterns rotate at increasing speed until the lines literally merge together, almost like an optical illusion. The constant movement within the work is an assault on our senses, and recalls the psychedelic art movement of the 1960s. Working directly with the artist, Sedition brings you this exclusive limited edition.
