Earlier this month, Shepard Fairey came and visited the Big Apple to work on a few projects (more on that later). In between his indoor sessions, he invited AM to tag along while he worked to beautify some legal spots in Manhattan. Many of you may recognize his classic wheat paste-ups, but Mr. Obey and his assistant Nick have expanded his outdoor tool-set to stenciling. Much like his giant Mandala Ornament mural and he stenciled in Miami and his WeHo Library wall in Los Angeles, he’s taken to site specific adjustments when the opportunity presents itself. We also watched Shepard literally hanging out of a 12 story building while putting up one of his signature Andre icons. It’s pretty obvious that some people don’t have their sarcasm radar calibrated because contrary to what a certain gossip site assumes – Shepard certainly works the streets himself.
Check out the full set taken for us by Joe Russo after the jump.
