Shepard Fairey: A Call to Action Against Hierarchies and Abuses of Power

Shepard Fairey: A Call to Action Against Hierarchies and Abuses of Power

Shepard Fairey was born in Charleston (S.C.) in 1970 and currently lives and works in Los Angeles, California. Fairey is the founder of Studios Number One and Number Two, graphic arts design companies. His powerful and varied body of work has drawn from all aspects of our visual culture, from political posters to museum installations. Fairey’s integration of design, popular culture, and politics places him in the current of artistic and cultural forces that shape our world today. The content of Fairey’s work is a call to action against hierarchies and the abuses of power, politics and the monetizing of culture. He’s committed to creating work that has meaning for his audience by using familiar cultural iconography that people can relate to and by constantly bringing his work into the public sphere.
