Francisco Reyes Jr. and I have been working together for several years now, and we frequently talk about politics and social issues. When Cisco presented the concept of the Disruption and Disorder series as a possible collaboration, I immediately loved the power of the symbols used to call out the villains and their tactics. As America has moved toward a corporatocracy, the tactics of politicians like Trump and many corporations to brazenly undermine fact, science, and reasonable debate by spreading chaos and disinformation to advance their own agendas over the well-being of the public has become even more pervasive. When greed, disinformation, and indifference become the status quo, it is time to dissent. I really enjoy illustrating skulls and fire, so this art as a small act of dissent was a bit of visceral therapy. Cisco and I are both intensely frustrated with the state of politics, and I’m glad we were able to collaborate and bond with a bit of artistic resistance! – Shepard

Shepard Fairey shot to national fame as the graphic artist behind a 2008 iconic poster of Barack Obama, a portrait labeled simply "HOPE" and in a style that could be described as Andy Warhol meets Socialist Realism. Fairey, who graduated from the Rhode Island School of Design in 1992, was already well known among graffiti artists and fans, thanks to one of Fairey's early works of "guerilla" art, an impromptu stencil design based on an ad for Andre the Giant, a professional wrestler. Fairey made stickers of the image in the late '80s, along with the scrawl "Andre the Giant has a posse," and the image went viral, spreading far and wide through urban America, on street signs, billboards and walls. He later adapted the image and added the word "obey." Mixing left-wing politics with "appropriated" images and bold graphic design, Fairey now works as a fine artist and advertising designer, with a gallery in Los Angeles and business ventures that dip into publishing, fashion and urban sports (skateboarding).
