Artist: Shepard Fairey
Shepard Fairey is one of my favorite contemporary street artist, designers, and illustrators. His work I feel captures our generation with complete perfection. My most favorite deigns stem from his clothing line that he created in 2001 called “Obey.” Shepard gained a lot of fame when he created the 2008 historical hope poster for Obamas Campaign. Fairey isn’t afraid to speak through his art and deliver emotions from our generation through art.
Fairey’s work began in 1984 when he started to design t-shirts and skateboards. Ever since then he has been making controversial statement art that I completely love.
