About the work
Shepard Fairey describes the image as “beauty and resolution out of chaos.” The artist reminds us that in spite of adversity, hope and humanity can merge from every situation. “Obey Lotus Ornament” stands out among the selection of his works because it doesn't address socio-political issues, nor does it make a provocative statement. The artist simply intended to make a beautiful image that is undeniably appealing to all. Fairey refers to ornamental works as a “Trojan Horse” intended to draw the viewer in regardless of political orientation.
