“During most of my career, I have only made 18x24 inches edition. For this series, he created 30 x 41 inch (72.2 x 104.14 cm) XL art prints on custom paper.
This series will be the first time that many of his images are available in the more beautiful art format.
He came back to older images using wider range of techniques he has developed over the years.
Shepard Fairey spoke of the abuse of police authority and racism with several images he has created over the years, but this series of 30th anniversary works only has 30 images,
he chose "Bias by Numbers" as an important piece that includes an intersection of concerns.
"Bias by Numbers" tackles racial prejudice, criminal justice and media culture. He hopes that this art not only appeals visually, but also allows people to look at information and facts and think about how to bring about positive change.
