Numbered edition of 450

The Bias by Numbers print addresses racial bias in policing, criminal justice, and media culture. Racial bias in policing and criminal justice has a long history, but studies have revealed evidence of just how pervasive and consistent the bias against black citizens really is. From being five times more likely to be stopped and searched, to being four times more likely to be subjected to unnecessary use of force, to being four times more likely to be killed by the police when unarmed, blacks face a severe degree of police bias in relation to whites. The statistics revealing racial bias in prosecution and sentencing are compelling as well. Though recreational drug use is equally common in both predominantly black communities and predominantly white communities, convictions for drug possession are almost six times higher for blacks. Blacks frequently receive longer prison sentences than whites contributing to African Americans being incarcerated at more than 5 times the rate of whites.

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).

    Hi Roger,

    If you would have followed the track and trace number I gave you earlier, you would see where the package is now. I hope you understand the package was sent and the problem lies in the fact it could not be delivered and is now being returned to me. Maybe it is best if I return you your money. For I don't think this transaction can come to an end that is satisfactory for both of us
    Maybe Catawiki can help us with that.

    Kind regards, Marc
