Iconic American artist Shepard Fairey blurs the boundaries of art and design. His unique style is instantly recognised in exhibitions and on walls around the world.
His body of work includes the OBEY GIANT art project, the Barack Obama HOPE campaign, and this year’s ubiquitous ‘We The People’ initiative.
For the first time in 14 years, Shepard returns to Australia to headline the Game-Changer Talks Series. Shepard will be sharing his do-it-yourself approach, his career highlights, including
how he managed to turn his creativity into an authentic voice about street culture.
Beyond his guerrilla street art presence, Shepard Fairey has completed over 50 large-scale public murals around the world and his works are held in the permanent collections of MoMA, the Victoria & Albert Museum, the Smithsonian’s National Portrait Gallery, the Boston Institute of Contemporary Art, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art and many others.
This talk is exclusive to Vivid Sydney 2017.
