"I have had the privilege of being part of your artwork and I am proud to receive your support".

These words were spoken by the ex-president of the United States of America when, once elected, he honored a street artist for having made in his honor one of the most striking political illustrations of recent times.

"I am incredibly exciting to share the documentary on my life, thank you very much for the support!"

These, however, are the words of an incredible creative talent that, clumsy and embarrassed, will see his life transmitted on the big screen.

This artist is Shepard Fairey, or rather Obey, and yes, he is the one who gave life to Hope, the one who going around the city, attacking illegally the colorful face of Mr. Obama, the one who generated a media phenomenon and revolutionized the often underestimated concept of street-art.
