Through his art Shepard Fairey is constantly urging observers to question the origin and intention of the images we see on a daily basis. Where Fairey uses star imagery, a symbol borrowed from Soviet propaganda, his work is intended to draw attention to the consequences of blind obedience.
This concept is conveyed in Mandala Ornament I, with Fairey exploring the Buddhist symbol of the mandala – a symbol traditionally used for spiritual practices, which has been co-opted by the wellness movement.
He states: ‘My work uses people, symbols, and people as symbols to deconstruct how powerful visuals and emotionally potent phrases can be used to manipulate and indoctrinate.’

Your Framing Options at entergallery.com
Box framing is provided with all our online framing, creating a distance between the glass and your artwork, so no risk of ink transfer to the pane. it's the perfect, gallery grade choice for limited edition prints or original artworks.
Shadow float mounting is an option at our website, to give the appearance of an artwork floating within the frame. The mount – an archival foam core – creates depth too, by casting a shadow beneath the artwork. We highly recommend using a float mount when framing artwork with deckled (hand-torn) edges.
As always, all our materials are sustainable and archival to keep your artwork in mint condition and perfectly presented. Simply choose from our white or black float framing options, before adding to basket.
