Shepard Fairey

Shepard Fairey

Artist Shepard Fairey has long been haunting consumer culture with an ambition mocking street campaign featuring an omnipresent Andre the Giant.
An astute student in the arts of persuasion, Fairey began hsi epic satire on the science of celebrity endorsements and the alchemy of suggesting desire back in 1989, while he was still a student at The Rhode Island School of Design.
Since then his propaganda has been
proliferated through stickers, clothing, skateboards, posters, stencil
based graffiti and even a documentary film, to spread over the United
States and the unsuspecting world at large.
Currently based in
Los Angeles, where his design firm Studio Number One is landing
high-level corporate accounts from companies eager to see how his
commercial parodies can help sell their products, Fairey's rising
success has helped transform his once homemade Xerox style into lush
multi-colored screen prints. There's no telling what these images are
selling, but whatever it is, it's all so seductive that it's hard to
resist.
