Upper Playground, Justin Bua to support Barack Obama

Upper Playground partners with artist Justin Bua to support Barack Obama.

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 Bua’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.
