Street Artist Shepard Fairey


General Culture

I caught a Fresh Air interview with Shepard Fairey the other day. Fairey is the guy who created both the Obey and the Obama campaign posters (which nobody - incl. the artist - seems to find even remotely ironic). What I remember most vividly from the interview was Fairey talking about getting arrested during the Democrat’s national convention, while he was trying hang his own poster somewhere in Denver.
