Shepard Fairey, Molotov Man

The artist Shepard Fairey is known for his re-use of existing propaganda images. In 2006 he used a 1963 poster design by Ha Qiongwen - probably found on the web exhibition ‘The Chairman Smiles ’ or on Stefan Landsberger’s Propaganda Posters - as a source of inspiration for his print ‘Molotov Man’. In 2008, Fairey would become world famous with his ‘HOPE’ poster for Barack Obama’s election campaign.
