Good To Know: Unframed, professionally packed, stored flat in humidity controlled art storage facility, condition report available upon request; Asking Price: POA (Price On Application); Arty-Fact: Created in 2006, the ‘Rise Above’ series was Shepard Fairey’s commentary on abuses of power, governmental hypocrisy and loss of civil liberties, as well as a call for people to rise above these problems. Encouraging them to change the system or work around its limitations. Part of this series, ‘Uncle Scam’ is a verbal and visual twist on conventional expectations of patriotism. The iconic image of Uncle Sam is juxtaposed with the death of human rights, democracy, peace, justice, privacy and civil liberty – depicted by placing each of these values on a human skull.
