Shepard Fairey Speaks About His Musical & Artistic Influences
Profiles with Maggie LePique
Shepard Fairey is an American graphic artist and social activist who is part of the Street Art movement along with other artists including Banksy and Mr.Brainwash. Fairey blurs the boundary between traditional and commercial art through type and image, communicating his brand of social critique via prints, murals, stickers, and posters in public spaces. “Art is not always meant to be decorative or soothing, in fact, it can create uncomfortable conversations and stimulate uncomfortable emotions,” he stated. Born on February 15, 1970 in Charleston, South Carolina, Fairey graduated from the Rhode Island School of Design in 1992 where he earned his Bachelor of Arts in illustration. In 1989 Fairey created the André the Giant Has a Posse sticker campaign, featuring a stylized image of the wrestler André the Giant. This project was the foundation for his seminal Obey series, which helped to push Fairey into the public spotlight. The artist is perhaps best known for his Hope (2008) campaign, which portrays a portrait of then-presidential candidate Barack Obama, in red, white, and blue. In 2017, the artist created a series of three posters— featuring portraits of culturally diverse women, again using a red, white, and blue color scheme—in response to the xenophobic rhetoric of President-elect Donald Trump. Fairey currently lives and works in Los Angeles, CA. His works are included in the collections of the Smithsonian in Washington, D.C., the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, and the Victoria and Albert Museum in London.In 2019 Maggie visited Shepard's Studio Number One in Los Angeles and they talked about his earliest influences, musically and artistically and why it's important for artists to "Get Up, Stand Up" Source: http://www.artnet.com/artists/shepard-fairey/Source: https://obeygiant.comThis episode is from an archive from the KPFK program Rock Profiles adapted for podcast.

Episode 194: How Robert Poulton Teamed With Shepard Fairey on The Love Project
The Daily Brief Podcast | Promax
Creating art that sparks conversations is the driving force behind The Love Project, a non-profit launched by CNBC Marketing VP and Promax Thriver Robert Poulton.In the heated summer of 2020, Poulton took his art to a new level, drawing pictures as a kind of personal therapy fueled by the deaths of Ahmaud Arbery and George Floyd as well as by the Black Lives Matter movement.Having received a positive reaction to these works, Poulton decided to create prints from some of his drawings, and to donate them to friends and colleagues who, in return, agreed to make a contribution to organizations fighting for social justice reform, education and the arts.A friend who was helping Poulton with the printing recommended that he reach out to artist Shepard Fairey, feeling that the two had similar sensibilities. The two hit it off quickly and The Love Project was born.Poulton joins Promax Editorial Director Paige Albiniak to discuss his art and ideas, how his collaboration with Fairey began and what’s next for the project.
How do we see Fair use play out in the media: Shepard Fairey V. The Associated Press
Happy Little Accidents
This week Caira explores The iconic HOPE poster that was seen all over during Obama's presidential campaign. Mr. Fairey, who sued The Associated Press in 2009 after it accused him of copyright infringement for using one of its pictures as the foundation for the poster, claimed that he did not steal any copyrightable content and that his use of the photograph was not unauthorized. This week, we'll look at how fair use and copyright are involved in this case, as well as what it means for future fair use cases.--- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app
