Street Scene

I first came across Shepard Fairey’s work when an image of a man’s face blew across my feet in NYC. I was so intrigued by the image that I took it home and put it up on the wall. I later learned it was Andre the Giant and that it was part of a work by Fairey. I have come to look forward to his street art, seeing it on sides of buildings and newsstands.

There are many others too, like work featured by the Wooster Collective and work by DAM!.

I like the layered look of this piece with all previous showing through. If you know the name of the artist please let me know—it’s swell!
