Shepard Fairey - Obey

Shepard Fairey - Obey Shepard Fairey (aka Obey Giant)... Untitled (2006, collage and stencil). From Shepard Fairey - Obey, a show of solo works by Shepard Fairey at Galerie Magda Danysz in Paris. "...The visual codes used by Shepard Fairey, aka Obey Giant, are worthy of those of Stalinist propaganda, but here they highlight the mechanisms of advertising propaganda which invade public space. Currently based in Los Angeles, Fairey's rising success has helped transform his once homemade Xerox style into lush multi-colored screen prints."
