I wanted to share one of the photo sets from Art In The Streets, even if it is a bit late in the day. I’m gonna be sharing more of these sets over the next couple days, but I thought Shepard Fairey was a good way to start. I’m a huge fan of his work, I love what he’s done with his art and where his career has gone. His inclusion into the exhibit is a no duh, and I was glad to see that he was afforded a nice space to be displayed in. What was cool is that he had a few original pieces in the show, including what I think is the original Obey Giant sticker from way back in 1989. That’s pretty sick. What’s crazy is you see all of the paintings in these photos, but his part of the exhibit is such a tiny part of a larger scheme.

Check back tomorrow for two more photo sets by Swoon and the area called the ‘Street Market’. There’s also more photos underneath the cut, don’t miss ’em.

    i’m a bit over fairey’s work… no question he has a firm grasp on the russian/german propaganda aesthetic and his work is meticulously executed but lately it seems a bit soulless. i was floored, however, by the works of ROA, Margaret Kilgallen & Banksy. The 80’s subway posters of Keith Haring left me dead in my tracks. Great topic, BlackFox!!
