Last night, Shepard Fairey premiered his newest image for Barack Obama entitled “VOTE”. How fitting that he unveiled this new image in the nation’s capital.

No word yet on whether or not he will make this into a print, but we will keep you in the loop. After the first night of “legitimate” […]
Last night, AM got invited to follow artist Shepard Fairey around Washington DC and watch him create a few murals at some prominent DC locations. Shepard and his boys hit the ground running Wednesday afternoon, even after a grueling cross country red-eye earlier in the morning. Painting the town Obey was Shepard’s goal.Â He was the first person to roll up his sleeves to hit the wheatpaste, and was the last person to leave. It was surreal to see Shepard create a brand new mural […]

This weekend, two of street art’s best, Shepard Fairey and D*Face, invade La Ville-Lumiere (that’s Paris) for a show at the lovely Galerie Magda Danysz. Looks like Mr. Obey will be showing mostly larger HPMs and album covers, giving European collectors a crack at some images from his recent, instantly sold-out San Fran show; D*Face will show some mixed media works and prints. If you are in Paris, check out the vernissage on Saturday, or peruse the show at your leisure sometime before October 25. […]
Influential street artist Shepard FaireyÂ has been aÂ cornerstone of the US urban art scene for more than a decade, but his influence trancended mere street artÂ after he created an image of Barack ObamaÂ 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 MuseumÂ will hold a symposium with Shepard Fairey and Al Farrow. Both artists will […]
