The Obvious has an expiration date

Graffiti Artist Shepard Fairey on how the obvious is the never-ending source of inspiration because it always has to be reinvented:

He sees much of his work through the lens of activism and spreading a subversive message that will change the way people look at the spin and influence of government and corporate structures. Fairey cites George Orwell and his call for intelligent people to restate the obvious as a guiding inspiration.

“The manipulation that happens to people, that much of activism is about combating, happens because people have become numb to the obvious and it’s allowed people to have a specific agenda to sort of get around the obvious,” Fairey said.
