Streets: Shepard Fairey – Nelson Mandela @ South Africa

Shepard Fairey (featured) took his talents on a global tour this year with stops in Los Angeles, Chicago, Philly, New York, Berlin, Tokyo and South Africa, to name a few. One of his more notable stops was in South Africa, which has long been a focal point of political dissent. Given this situation, it’s fitting that Mr. Fairey paid his first-ever visit to Johannesburg to build an eight story mural of their recently passed icon Nelson Mandela. Mandela was a key anti-apartheid revolutionary, politician, and philanthropist who served […]

Continuing their art related efforts, Urban Nation recently invited Shepard Fairey’s (featured) in for their One Wall Project.

Streets: Shepard Fairey (New York)

Last week, Shepard Fairey (featured) visited New York City to show a little love for his fans in the Big Apple. Mr. Obey and his posse worked on a massive six story mural on Bowery just off of Broome as he took advantage of the Manhattan skyline with the help of the L.I.S.A. project. Entitled We Own The Future, this fresh creation took over three days to finish and we stopped by to document the process from beginning to end. Discuss Shepard Fairey here.

Streets: World Roundup (Aug 4 – Aug 24)

With the return of our Streets: World Roundup feature, we first want to bring your attention to a new mural from Blu in Sardinia, Italy. The wall he painted once again showed his skills with large-scale imagery while working around architectural features of his surface. Also, the upside down toy soldiers are consistent with the Italian street artist’s penchant for politically charged public works. Other worthy walls come from Ernest Zacharevic – US, Satone – Germany, Seth – Puerto Rico, Bordalo II – Portugal (source), […]
