Equality and empowerment for ALL people regardless of race, gender, or sexual orientation has been a cornerstone of my philosophy and a focus of my art for many years. I originally made my “Power and Equality” image in 2007 but updated it to this new “Push Forward” version as a reminder that until there is true equality, we must continue to push forward. This “Push Forward” print is released in conjunction with Robert Poulton’s Love Project in support of the fight for social justice and to help put an end to systemic racism. Proceeds from every “Push Forward” print go directly to organizations fighting for social justice, education and the arts. Robert is not only an activist and comrade, but a great artist and designer, so check out his other Love Project images and buy one in solidarity with the movement for racial justice!

Shepard Fairey & The Love Project:
Shepard Fairey, friend to the project and world renowned artist, activist, designer and founder of OBEY Clothing lends his support to The Love Project with a limited edition print called “Push Forward.”
Adapted from his original “Step Forward” print, this version was created specifically for The Love Project and is all about the ongoing struggle for racial justice. In collaboration with Shepard and Obey Giant, 100 “Push Forward” letterpress prints signed by Shepard will be released on the Love Project site Monday May 11th at 8a ET. A week later 400 prints will be released by Shepard and Obey Giant. The proceeds from all prints go directly to the following organizations:
– The NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund, Inc.
