The silhouette of Barack Obama is a widely recognized image of the former President. It is a stylized representation of his head and shoulders, usually in black and white, and is often used as a symbol of his presidency and legacy. The silhouette is often used in political cartoons and illustrations, as well as on campaign posters, merchandise, and other items. The iconic image was created by artist Shepard Fairey, who used an image of Obama from a photograph taken by the Associated Press. He created an image which was a stylized portrait of Obama, with the word "Hope" written underneath. The image became a symbol of Obama's campaign and helped to establish his brand during the 2008 presidential campaign.
