Gallery Label: 

Brandon Litman (b. 1981), a street artist, documentary filmmaker, and serial entrepreneur, began his series of political stencils to promote Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign among millennial voters.

Litman’s stencil portrait of Clinton is after the official poster designed by Tony Puryear for her 2008 primary campaign, which in turn uses a portrait taken by the photographer and rock singer Bryan Adams around 2004. The stencil designs feature different taglines—about ten variations in all—that appear beneath Clinton’s image.
