Fairey's work is so unique and so striking. His minimal color palette paints such a serious tone. His work celebrates, dissects and explores Pop Culture, Politics, Money, Death, Music, War, Greed - it just doesn't stop. His art is reminiscent of old propaganda-style posters. The way that each of his pieces look like layers and layers of paper and newsprint and paint give it a home-made aesthetic but it's so much more polished than that. His work speaks such strong statements. He digs deep in to the belly of the culture and slaps it up on a wall. Fairey's art began on the streets in the cities where he lived. As a skateboarding youth, he began tagging structures and creating art on building walls. He first became known for his OBEY sticker campaign which featured a stencil of wrestler André the Giant. You likely have seen it before but just had no clue who or what it was all about. His work has obviously been put on the forefront due to the HOPE campaign. Where he sits now is right where he belongs. Fairey is a true trail blazer in modern art. I'm such a huge fan of his work now. A few of my favorite from the exhibit are below. xx.
