Photos by G. Art by Shepard Fairey.
A couple of years ago in May, Shepard Fairey took over New York with public murals, stickers everywhere and a climactic gallery exhibit. Flash forward to May 2012 and Shepard is back in New York. His latest exhibit “Harmony and Discord” features new works, including the largest screen prints he’s done to date.
If you’re a regular reader of this site (and I thank you for your patronage), you know that I love Shepard Fairey. After attending the opening for “Harmony and Discord,” I love him even more. Though he was in the center of a mob scene of fans wanting photos and signatures, Shepard Fairey was more than happy to chat with anyone and everyone around! One young lady asked him some advice as she is a budding artist and student and rather than give a short and curt answer, Shepard must have given her advice for 5 minutes! He was even giving fans stickers and when he handed them out, he gave advice of the best spots to put them up. That was extremely cool, according2g!
Thanks again Shepard and congrats on another great exhibit. “Harmony and Discord” runs through June 16, 2012 at Pace Prints, located at 521 West 26th Street in New York. Obey!
