From Obey Giant:
“Facing the Giant: Three Decades of Dissent” co-curator Pedro Alonzo has this to say about Commanda: This print is a fictionalized portrait of Shepard Fairey’s wife, Amanda. The title, which is a hybrid of her name and the word, “command,” acts as a verbal description of her confident and powerful character. Although a familiar subject, the artist renders her partially veiled and diverts her attention away from the viewer. Holding a spray can in one hand and cloaking her face with the other, she is mysterious, but her intentions are clear. Shown as an anonymous female purveyor of the street art practice favored by Fairey, as a mixed-race protagonist/antagonist she helps to upend traditional tropes of female portraiture. Instead, Fairey presents her as a universal model of women in his eyes, who are fierce, independent, and proactive.
