Who is Shepard Fairey ?
Frank Shepard Fairey is an American contemporary street artist, graphic artist, social activist, illustrator, and founder of OBEY Clothing, who emerged from the street art scene along with artists such as Banksy, Canvaz, Keith Haring and TRUST.iCON. Born in South Carolina and currently Living and working in California, he first became known for his "Andre the Giant has a Posse" sticker campaign and now communicates his brand and message through murals, posters, prints and stickers in public places.
Perhaps Shepard Fairey is best known for his iconic, Hope (2008) campaign; a portrait of presidential candidate Barack Obama, in red, white, and blue. In 2017, the artist created a series of three posters— featuring portraits of culturally diverse women, again using a red, white, and blue colour scheme—in response to the xenophobic rhetoric of President-elect Donald Trump.
“Art is not always meant to be decorative or soothing, in fact, it can create uncomfortable conversations and stimulate uncomfortable emotions”
