Shepard Fairey’s latest Subject: first Obama, now the Dalai Lama.

This via our friend and Shambhala Sun Space editor Rod Meade Sperry at The Worst Horse:

Shep Fairey — he of the ubiquitous Obama poster, the ubiquitous Obey Giant street-art campaign, and countless other works, has now portrayed the Dalai Lama in this new portrait, Compassion.

"Compassion" by Shepard Fairey

You may recall that Fairey recently portrayed Aung San Suu Kyi as well.

Done to celebrate His Holiness’s 75th birthday, Compassion is available from Fairey’s website, and net proceeds will be split between Tibet House and LA Friends of Tibet. (The Dalai Lama’s birthday is on July 6.)

Happily, Rod reports that all 500 prints created sold very quickly. Yay!
