This year’s presidential race has been a hot topic, drawing the attention of the normally apathetic American population as people are turning out in droves to have their say in the 2008 elections. Barack Obama has gained a huge following, everything from the celebrity filled music video Barack Obama Yes We Can to this recent print produced by the artist collective known as the Date Farmers in conjunction with FIFTY24SF. The signed and numbered print seen here is part of Upper Playground’s push for Obama in his upcoming Texas primaries. These prints reflect the same imagery seen on Obama’s Texas campaign. All proceeds from the $200 prints will be used to support other artist efforts in support of Barack Obama. Currently on pre-sale, the prints will ship out March 7th.
