The Wall Street Public Enemy print is a critique of the culture of greed and manipulation seen on Wall Street and in the banking system. Lack of oversight from the government that is beholden to Wall Street and the banking system in the wake of their lobbying and campaign contributions creates a system ripe for corruption and greed. Eventually, corruption and greed become so permitted that they simply become a culture. Wall Street wants to profit from the public by any means necessary, think a couple trillion in illegal toxic mortgage loan bundling which created the housing bubble and almost sank the world economy, so the only way to keep the practices more fair than corrupt is to have rigorous oversight by those who are meant to serve the public. The public needs to understand that an unregulated Wall Street and the banking system is their enemy! To avoid a repeat of the 2008 financial crisis, laws and regulations that support long-term value and punish reckless short-term profit grabs need to be implemented.

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).
