Yesterday, Tristan Eaton revealed a project he has been working on getting started for the past five years – a plan to paint the Red Sands Sea Forts off the coast of the UK along with Shepard Fairey, Futura, How & Nosm, and The London Police. Although the proposal does have its naysayers who bring up some valid points, the ultimate goal is to bring enough attention to these historic structures built during World War II thereby generating enough money to hopefully preserve these for […]
Ever wonder what the the house of a successful artist like Shepard Fairey (featured) looks like?

Take a look at more photos below… “Residence of iconic American artist, Shepard Fairey, a 1929 Mediterranean home tells a story; a language of love and HOPE. 4 Beds 3 […]
After working with the TAO Group on their NY downtown location by installing some of his art work in 2013 (covered), British artist Hush (interviewed) was recently asked to curate the decor for a new restaurant located on the Bowery on the Lower East Side called Vandal. Teaming up with celebrity chef Chris Santos (of Chopped fame), the appropriately named restaurant, bar, and lounge features fare inspired by European and Asian street food and the interiors featuring murals and installations from Hush himself and artists like Shepard Fairey, Apexer, Tristan Eaton, Eelus, Vhils, and […]

It’s hard to believe that it’s been 5 years since since street artist, activist and most recently outlaw (according to the mayor of Detroit), Shepard Fairey has ‘formally’ had a solo show in New York City. But as you likely know (if you are reading this), the American artist doesn’t stand still for very long. Let’s not kid ourselves with the math equation here, the Los Angeles-based artist and his posse still go as hard as any, 26+ years in the game. He recently finished up his second […]
