Obey (OUGD101)



INTERPRETING IMAGES OF THE PRESENT, PAST AND A RANGE OF CULTURES

EXAMPLE 3:

'Be The Change'

This image can be found at: http://obeygiant.com/prints/inauguration-print

This design produced for Barack Obama's inauguration - like XTRMNTR - has a distinct Russian overtone. This is interesting due to the tension both nations are renown for having with each other. However, this imagery helps to successfully communicate a notion of pride and power for the Americans using the very same stye of imagery that the Russians did induce the same effect in their Communist days.

Cheers.
