Shepard Fairey


Frank Shepard Fairey (b. 1970) is a contemporary graphic designer and illustrator. He emerged from the skateboarding scene, where he first placed his drawings on skateboards and t-shirts. He holds a BA in Fine Arts in Illustration from the Rhode Island School of Design. He made his way into the eye of the general public through the poster he created for Barack Obama’s presidential election campaign 2008.

The picture above is based on his Obey campaign prints yet I made it White Collar style. You can read more about the art series White Collar – Art Nearly Forged, from which this painting is a part of here.
