Obey: The Art Of Shepard Fairey

Just wanted to recommend the "Supply and Demand" show by Shepard Fairey at the ICA in Boston. Great stuff! Pick up the catalog too. Go before the show comes down at the end of the summer. I know he's well known for the Obama poster and the Andre The Giant stickers, but he goes a whole lot deeper than that. Check it out. Love the mix of politics, dark humor, and music. Suitable for kids. This little gallery you see below, gleaned from the web, only scratches the surface. Fairey's art is viral and based in pop art, graff, and propaganda, so I feel justified in "stealing" imagery and posting it here. I must obey my instincts so here goes... - DJ Bongohead
