“I chose to illustrate this image of two girls knitting (in a Rush Arts program) because I think it really captures the idea that learning art in schools is about more than crayon drawings, it’s about creativity, something that transcends all class and race boundaries. I think the joy of making something is universal, and it’s an opportunity that every kid should have.”
– Shepard

In preparation of Supply & Demand moving to the Andy Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh, Shepard Fairey has been gracing the Iron City with new murals.  In a display of tech-saavy resourcefulness, a google map has been created to spotlight mural locations for all computer literate Yinzers.  Pretty handy

Shepard Fairey Tuesday: Graffiti Proof

Shepard-fairey-Studio-number-One

Apparently, after some sandblasting and the application of anti-graffiti coating, Studio Number One is becoming a buff spot.

Shepard Fairey was quoted through an email saying…

“When graff seeped into the raw brick it was very difficult to clean, the building is historic and I love and want to protect the brick. The city was never any help with removal. Graffiti is par for the course.”

Well, it is a nice looking building.

This year, students arriving at Northeastern University’s International Village will have quite a feast for their eyes.  A huge 20′ x 12′ mural by Shepard Fairey has been newly installed inside the dorm as part of an effort to “showcase the university’s commitment to creative expression.”  Whatever the case, it’s a great move on both parties parts as the result is new fans for everybody.

Obey Boston

I just happened to be at the ICA today in Boston to catch the Obey show show, you still have time. Anyway. while I am walking the show, I bump into the artist himself. The pretty cool thing he was giving a tour to a group of students. He is and has always been a nice guy. If your in Boston make sure to hit the ICA.

Shepard Fairey Tuesday: Stages 09

shepard-fairey-stages

This post is as much about Shepard Fairey as it is about STAGES 09.  Seriously to the folks that put this on, from the gallery presentation and artists to the branding and internet presence, great job.  What you’ve done is a model for what others should do.  And on top of it all, an excellent cause.

Have a look around the STAGES 09 site and enjoy.

Shepard Fairey Tuesday: “A very different kind of portrait”

Wendy Wick Reaves, curator at the National Portrait Gallery, breaks down Shepard Fairey’s Obama Hope piece in this new video from the National Portrait Gallery. I would’ve never thought of Oriental Orange as a color until now. Wendy could tuck me in and describe all the artwork on my walls to me nightly. You go curator lady!  Now to whoever did the camerawork and editing, better luck next time.
