Shepard Fairey Media Blitz
Shepard Fairey of Obey Giant fame has been in the media swirl lately for good or bad. Either way, it is a great way to mark up your hourly rate;) It's hard to keep track of all the flurry but here is what I have come up with lately:
Shepard Fairey arrested in Boston
Shepard Fairey: Supply and Demand show opens ICA Boston
AP wants credit for Fairey's Obama image

Art is a powerful tool and can take many forms from the hyper-nostalgic Thomas Kinkade to the art sampling of Shepard. Both reflect our society and current culture in perfect clarity.
Where do you stand on this?
