Shepard Fairey has long been haunting consumer culture with an ambition mocking street campaign featuring an omnipresent Andre the Giant. An astute student in the arts of persuasion, Fairey began his epic satire on the science of celebrity endorsements and the alchemy of suggesting desire back in 1989, while he was still a student at The Rhode Island School of Design. Since then his propaganda has been proliferated through stickers, clothing, skateboards, posters, stencil based graffiti and even a documentary film, to spread over the United States and the world. Currently based in Los Angeles, Fairey's rising success has helped transform his once homemade Xerox style into lush multi-coloured screenprints.
