TRAYVON MARTIN COVER FOR EBONY MAGAZINE BY SHEPARD FAIREY


Shepard Fairey provided this month cover artwork for ebony magazine that profiles the death of Trayvon Martin – a national issue that remains a hot-button topic. Shepard said “I have followed Trayvon’s case closely and I think any compassionate human being can relate to Trayvon as a brother or son and would want to see a thorough investigation into the killing of an unarmed person. In my portrait I wanted to emphasize Trayvon’s humanity as well as the public outcry for a just investigation into his death.”
