Shepard Fairey, American is a major influencer in the street art movement along side Banksy, Mr. Brainwash, and others. He has gained notoriety as a graphic artist, muralist, and an expert in mixed media. He was born on February 15, 1970 and is now based in Los Angeles, California. Fairey grew up in the skateboarding and punk rock culture, and may also be most well known for his 2008 "Hope" poster of then U.S. presidential candidate Barack Obama.

And here we have an excellent example of his work. The print measures 24" x 18". It is signed, numbered and dated in pencil along the lower edge. Soft crease to upper left corner; minor upper right corner bump. Sheet is loose. Unframed.We will include a Charles Scott Gallery Letter of Authenticity.

Additional Information: "The Sex Pistols changed my life. When I was a 14-year-old skateboarder, a friend played me “Never Mind the Bollocks, Here’s the Sex Pistols,” and that moment marked a turning point for me. The Sex Pistols provided the adrenaline-inducing soundtrack for my rebellion. If the Sex Pistols provided the soundtrack, the artist behind their imagery, Jamie Reid, provided the visuals for the revolution. Jamie Reid did the iconic art for the Sex Pistols like the “God Save the Queen” sleeve, the “Pretty Vacant” sleeve, and the cover for the album “Never Mind the Bollocks, Here’s the Sex Pistols.” Jamie deserves the majority of credit for the daring aesthetics of Punk Rock. If you’ve ever seen a photocopied, ransom note style, cut & paste punk graphic, then you’ve seen Jamie Reid’s influence. Jamie has been one of my biggest creative inspirations both visually and philosophically, because his work is bold, provocative, irreverent, and political. Jamie Reid also turned me on to Situationism, a movement dedicated to disrupting the conformist trance through pranks and spectacles. I’m honored that I have been able to work with Jamie on some collaborative images and to present a special collection through Obey Clothing in his honor, as well as two limited edition screen-prints. Jamie and I have mutual interest in shaking things up and addressing the problems of corruption, environmental destruction, and wealth inequality, so it is very energizing and meaningful to do a project with him. Enjoy and embrace the chaos!" – Shepard
