Shepard Fairey
Shepard Fairey, born in 1970 in South Carolina, is a Los Angeles based artist who emerged from the skateboarding scene. He first became known for his "André the Giant has a Posse" sticker campaign. He then pasted his OBEY poster campaign all around the world, with constantly evolving graphic designs.
Fairey's first art museum exhibition, aptly named Supply & Demand alongside his book, was in Boston at the Institute of Contemporary Art in the summer of 2009. The exhibition featured over 250 works in a wide variety of media: screen prints, stencils, stickers, rubylith illustrations, collages, and works on wood, metal and canvas. As a complement to the ICA exhibition, Fairey created public art works around Boston. Most of the prints by Shepard Fairey are published in the book Supply and Demand: The Art of Shepard Fairey released in 2006.
His work became more widely known in the 2008 U.S. presidential election, specifically his Barack Obama "Hope" poster. The Institute of Contemporary Art, Boston calls him one of today's best known and most influential street artists. His work is included in the collections at The Smithsonian, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego, the National Portrait Gallery in Washington, and the Victoria and Albert Museum in London.
