BOSTON STREET ART: OBEY by SHEPARD FAIREY!

I saw another awesome mural (paste-up) yesterday and the information below is taken from this link: http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Journalism/2011/12/14/Shepard-Fairey-Recycles-Harvard-Square-Mural-of-Muslim-Woman-on-Time-Person-of-the-Year-Cover–Updated ~

The mural below, by Obama iconographer and “OBEY” designer Shepard Fairey, appears on the side of a shopping center in Harvard Square, Cambridge, Massachusetts:

Though the word “peace” appears at bottom, and there is a tulip in the barrel of the gun, the tulip is also a symbol adopted by Iranian revolutionaries in 1979, and adorns the regime’s flag.As in much of Fairey’s work, the themes of “hope” and liberation are connected in the Harvard Square mural with fantasies of totalitarian violence and domination.
