After a festival-circuit tour that included a world premiere at Sundance and a Best Director prize in the Un Certain Regard section of Cannes, Matt Ross’ “Captain Fantastic” is set to hit theaters next month.

Obey the famous street artist’s wishes and check out the new art above.

Fairey first came to attention for his Andre the Giant Has a Posse stickers in the late ’80s and gained even wider renown after designing the “Hope” poster for Barack Obama’s 2008 presidential campaign. (Said campaign was a successful one, in case you didn’t know.)
