Shepard Fairey (OBEY): A Private Collection

Shepard Fairey (OBEY): A Private Collection at Mondo Bizzaro Gallery in Rome. "...Shepard Fairey, a forty-years-old artist from the skatebording scene, has been often compared to the epic figure of Andy Warhol because of his multiples artwork series, including screen printings, and also for his need to multiply his presence in various sectors, both business and media. That’s how the clothing label OBEY, the magazine Swindle, the gallery Subliminal Projects, and many other projects grown up over the years. But where Warhol portrayed showbusiness stars, Shepard Fairey prefers to shine the spotlight on liberal and progressive America. Subcomandante Marcos and Angela Davis are his subjects, as well as guerrilla women from all over the world, gentled by flowers sprouting from the barrels of their rifles."
