Shepard Fairey, My florist is a dick, 2015
My florist is a dick

I’m over in Berlin, and I was asked if my Sadistic Florist image is an SS soldier. No, it is NOT an SS uniform. It is a Washington DC riot police uniform. I guess the power of suggestion has shown itself here in Berlin. Unfortunately, there have been many deaths at the hands of the police historically and in recent months in the US. The police are frequently portrayed as "peace keepers" which is why I have the humorous flowers in the image. Over 5,000 civilians have died at the hands of the police in the U.S. since 9/11. That is far more than have been killed by terrorists… including 9/11. Check out this article by Katie Rucke. We need police to wear body-cameras, not more electronic data collection from ordinary citizens.

18 x 24 inch screen print. Signed and numbered edition of 450. $45. Limit 1 per person/household.
