MAY DAY: Shepard Fairey’s street roots & the call for awareness

As we mentioned in previous posts before, MAY DAY is the exhibition of Shepard Fairey’s new work. The exhibition is currently ongoing at the Deitch Gallery in New York, and will last until 5/29/10.

But the exhibition didn’t stop at the gallery. Shepard didn’t forget about the street– we see some artwork around street at Lafayette and Bowery, and several less formal pieces of his have been spotted throughout the city recently.

The exhibition has gotten more attention than before–it is featured in the Interview magazine (mentioned HERE) & GRIT tv to talk about Fairey’s prints take on an array of political issues and celebrateicons from rock’n’roll, sports, and politics. And of course, art, rock’n’roll, populism, politics, and the common threads that run through all of his work.
