The propagation of Shepard Fairey’s art has by now gained a global scope. With his highly recognisable style reminiscent of mid-20th century political propaganda – a bold colour palette of mostly red tones and chunky graphics – he is often considered the forefather of the street art movement, and combines subversive, sharp commentary with monumental, repetitive images. Stickers, posters, murals, and more fall within the realm of Fairey’s art. This massive catalogue offers a wide selection of works, reviewing his more than 25-year career while tracing an artistic trajectory influenced by music, politics, and environmental issues. Includes a text by fellow urban artist D*Face.
