  • (Frank) Shepard Fairey

    Frank Shepard Fairey is known as a contemport artist, graphic designer and illustrator. He attended the Rhode Island School of Design in 1989 where his interest in art began. His work has been seen through stickers, clothing, skateboards, posters, stencil based graffiti and a documentary film. Fairey, what he likes to be called, is based in Los Angeles, California. He has been extremely popular since his debut with President Obama’s image.

    All the artists this week beat to their own drum. They all have a sense of quirkiness about them that is peculiar. I like Fairey’s take on big images like President Obama. He uses a limited palette which I think makes his work easily identifiable.
