Obey Giant Mural in Johannesburg

Obey Giant Mandela Mural in Johannesburg (Photo taken from https://www.facebook.com/ObeyGiant/)

Shepard Fairey (Obey Giant) recently did a mural of Mandela in Johannesburg, South Africa. Go check it out if you get the chance.

I’m an advocate of human rights, justice, and equality, so it should be obvious why Nelson Mandela is a hero of mine. Some people seem confused by the use of purple and the slogan on my Mandela mural but they reference the anti Apartheid Purple Protest that you can read about here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Purple_Rain_Protest
