Shepard Fairey Paints up Boston’s Fort Point Channel and Seaport District.
Earlier this week Shepard Fairey hosted his first solo museum show at our very own Boston ICA. The show has been overwhelming taken as the after party spilled back to our offices at 319 A Street afterwards.
Rumor has it that Shepard is going to be DJ’ing tonight at a sold out ICA event. Anyone have extra tickets?
Frank Shepard Fairey (born February 15, 1970 in Charleston, South Carolina) is a contemporary artist, graphic designer and illustrator who emerged from the skateboarding scene and became known initially for his “André the Giant Has a Posse” sticker campaign. His work became more widely known in the 2008 United States 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. He usually omits his first name. 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, and the Victoria and Albert Museum in London.
