Shepard Fairey


“In these tough economic times, it’s more important than ever to make sure every American has access to essential nourishment. Hunger is often suffered quietly, and I feel strongly that we can only solve it by calling attention to its gravity and acting not only with generosity but also with a determination to eradicate this hardship.”

Shepard Fairey is the man behind OBEY GIANT, the graphics that have changed the way people see art and the urban landscape. What started with an absurd sticker he created in 1989 while a student at the Rhode Island School of Design has since evolved into a worldwide street art campaign, as well as an acclaimed body of fine art. In 2003, Shepard founded Studio Number One, a creative design firm dedicated to applying his ethos at the intersection of art and enterprise. Shepard’s art reached a new height of prominence in 2008, when his “HOPE” portrait of Barack Obama became the iconic image of the presidential campaign and helped inspire an unprecedented political movement.
