Before Shepard Fairey would even make a name for himself in the art scene there was somebody else who did anti-political posters in the streets. After being fed up with abuse of power by the Reagan administration, Robbie Conal decided to make satirical paintings of politicians. He made posters of his paintings and gradually developed an army of voluntary guerrilla activists that helped him put them up in the major cities of the U.S . In his career he has made over 80 different posters, criticizing leaders with various political believes. In 2004 he teamed up with Shepard Fairey and Mear One to make a series of “anti-war, anti-bush” posters, however one of his most iconic poster is a portrait of Reagan with the text “Contradiction”. The poster refers to illegal funding and arming by the Reagan administration of the right-wing contras that fought the leftist Sandinista regime in at the time in Nicaragua.
