Bua garnered international acclaim with raw depictions of urban life, hip-hop, and jazz musicians that appeal to a diverse group that ranges from street kids to former US Presidents, but his posters are especially popular in the US and Canadian college markets.
Justin Buaâ€™s Barack posters form part of an ongoing series by Upper Playground in support of Obama’s presidential campaign, which UP has openly endorsed. Other aspects of the endorsement include T-shirts with Shepard Fairey’s Obama graphics to bolster the campaign.
200 prints have been signed and numbered. The limited-edition 18″ x 24″ print is available exclusively online and ships as of October 8, 2008. Expect to pay $200 a pop with proceeds going directly to creating more campaign t-shirts, posters, and stickers by other artists in support of Obama’s bid for President.
Stay tuned for a new Upper Playground project in support of Barack Obama to be announced later this month.
