Recommended Posts

While browsing www.upperdeckstore.com to see what sports memorabilia I could purchase to make the wife visibly upset I saw this.

MICHAEL JORDAN ART PRINTS



BY SHEPARD FAIREY

COMING SOON!

Together with acclaimed artist Shepard Fairey, Upper Deck presents specially commissioned artwork featuring 2009 Hall of Famer Michael Jordan. Shepard, who is known for creative street art campaigns and iconic pieces of work (like his memorable "HOPE" portrait of President Barack Obama), has now added Michael Jordan to his select list of subjects. In honor of Michael's career, Shepard created North Carolina and Chicago Bulls-themed depictions along with a bold portrait of the Hall of Famer.

Everything about Michael Jordan is iconic, from his slam dunks to his signature shoes, so he makes a great subject for portraiture because everything about him is laced with cultural significance.



- artist Shepard Fairey





He's already got a couple of Kobe prints on the upperdeck website.

Biting from propaganda posters isn't talent.
