yeah, that shep fair is embarrassingly bad. i can see how it would have massive appeal with teenagers, but why would any adult want it? what cliche is he going to include in his art next? rise above? fight the power? form a revolution!?
Another way to look at Shep's work might be to see it as the acknowledgment of the disappearance of counterculture that coincided with the rise of the digital age.
visit hot topic
haha... great comment!
And isn't Obey clothing line about one step away from being carried by hot topic? Maybe its me, but living in Southern CA I always see the biggest tools wearing Obey shirts. They buy them at Nordstroms with their True Religion jeans.
I actually really like that faile - it does have a more flat feel to it but in a good way. It almost feels like a stripped down 'summer' piece which is light and airy
as much as i like shep's work i have to say his piece in the show was pretty poor imo
Totally agree with Volvic, what a beautiful Faile!
Regarding Shepard Fairey, I'm becoming tired of his capitalist propaganda... at the end it's all about money, lots (and lots and lots) of prints (1/month?) without own imagery (some saying plagia), clothes to rise lot of cash, new works with old stencils, and he sells even the stencils (pretty expensive at his NY Show by the way).
Don't misunderstood me, I like Shepard Fairey's work, specialy all those with Angela Davis, Toxicity inspector, War by numbers and some of his last works (Basquiat on canvas is a pure beauty!) but at one point it's just too much... maybe without the clothing line...
It is just unfair, on one side, to use revolutionnary propaganda as art and on the other, use capitalism business to rise money with clothing line. At the end it's just usign revolution ideas (revolution is cool, people will buy) to rise money, kind of weerd.
