San Francisco artist Michael Cuffe has released a painting that marks the significance of the Obama Presidency, his successful presidential campaign and America’s quest for hope with a nod to the Beatles’ Sgt. Pepper album.
The artwork, titled “Obama’s Hopeful Hearts Club,” is available for purchase as a print through his website for $20.
This poster combines two things that I love, The Beatles and politics. The thing I love so much about this poster is that it really captures the essence of what The Beatles and President-elect Obama’s messages are all about. That message is for HOPE. What a powerful and creative use of talent to highlight a man who represents change in its greatest form. Kudos.
Compare this with the original Sgt. Pepper’s album cover – here.
Here’s what we’ve read.
The Hopeful Hearts Club is a painting that reflects the essence of hope that the campaign has inspired in millions of Americans over the past 2 years. The 1967 Beatles Sgt. Pepper album manifested during a time of social, economic, and worldwide change. I feel that we are in another moment where the choices we make are having a profound effect on our lives, and the world at large.
As with the original Sgt. Pepper album, I have taken careful consideration of individual placement, individuals accomplishments, and their relationship to the Obama campaign and this time of change.
