Shepard Fairey speaking @ the Corcoran Museum (DC)

Influential street artist Shepard Fairey has been a cornerstone of the US urban art scene for more than a decade, but his influence trancended mere street art after he created an image of Barack Obama so powerful, that it became the image that symbolized Obama’s presidential campaign. How fitting that the LA based Fairey will come to Washington DC to speak about the social and political issues that have influenced his art work. The famous Corcoran Museum will hold a symposium with Shepard Fairey and Al Farrow. Both artists will […]

Our friend Jake from Streetsy.com went to ask them about the project and got them to admit “they worked for collossal media, the sign painting company, and they were given […]
