Shepard Fairey



In addition to being a street artist, Shepard Fairey is also a graphic designer, social activist, illustrator, and founder of the well-known streetwear brand OBEY. During his student days, he produced photos of the famous wrestler "Giant Andre" published in the Entertainment Weekly as posters and stickers, and spread them to various cities in the United States through skateboarders. This classic deed made him famous. Nowadays, he has made the most of this potential from the stickers, creating works that make the audience visually “obey”. He allowed the audience to follow his gaze further and pay attention to the topics he was concerned with, in order to practice the act of inciting society with art. He is currently the spiritual leader of street art in the world! He is internationally renowned and has exhibited at works in art galleries around the world.
