Symbiotic is a tricky word to use, but a fitting one to describe the relationship between Shepard Fairey and President Obama nonetheless. Shepard Fairey and Obama helped push each other’s image into a new level with the screen print for the Time’s Obama cover, which is later used through the campaign and grew into an icon of its own right . Half a year later and quite some time into Obama’s presidency, the artist is back to create another magazine cover art for Obama on Rolling Stones. The print this time has a slightly darker hue pertaining to the mood of close inspection on Obama so far by various political observers. You can check out the feature online at Rolling Stones, but we think this is a cover to keep and add to the Time magazine cover from before.
