Ron English "Barack Lincoln or Abe Obama"

Abe Obama or Barack Lincoln? One of the most controversial artists of our generation, Ron English, has partnered with Upper Playground and FIFTY24SF to produce this sick print of President Abraham Lincoln fused with Presidential hopeful Barack Obama. 
English’s Obama poster is part of an ongoing series from Upper Playground of artist collaborations in support of Barack Obama's presidential campaign. Upper Playground has endorsed Obama's campaign by creating posters featuring artwork from The Date Farmers, MunkOne, Alex Pardee, Morning Breath, Mac, Sam Flores, in addition to printing T-shirts with Shepard Fairey's Obama graphics to help support the campaign.
There are only 200 of these iconographic prints available, signed and numbered by English. The limited-edition 18"x24" print is available exclusively online at
upperplayground.com. Grab your pre-sale poster, and a little bit of history, now because they’re sure to go fast! 

Thanks to Juxtapoz for the downlow!
