Shepard Fairey takes on Aung San Suu Kyi

Burma is one of the most compelling, haunting, complex counties I have ever visited. The prolonged forced exile of Aung San Suu Kyi is beyond comprehension. If you are unfamiliar with the situation, I suggest renting the DVD, Beyond Rangoon. I watched it before I visited the country and the image of Aung San Suu Kyi facing the guns is the most dramatic and gripping demonstration of the power of peaceful protests.
A must see.

Shepard Fairey created this poster in support of Burmese dissident Aung San Suu Kyi. I loved his Obama image and am so glad he is using his influence and art to continue the dialogue.
