dc press‘shepard fairey starts a conversation at the dallas contemporary’ – d magazine
“shepard fairey’s artistic message is much more conversational than it was in 1989, when he created his “andre the giant has a posse” street art campaign as a student at the rhode island school of design, which grew to include his signature obey slogan. or even in 2008, when he created the iconic “hope” poster to support barack obama’s presidential campaign. the 52-year-old los angeles-based artist still probes america’s most glaring social issues, but now he does so in a way that he hopes will inspire dialogue, not disputes.”
