Shepard Fairey Yet Again
I am becoming almost paranoid about Shepard Fairey. His art is interlaced throughout our culture and my life.
Four recent examples: 1. Andre the Giant seen on an abandoned building in the new art district in Miami. 2. A spoof (of Fairey and Obama) on the cover of The Advocate. 3. A recent holiday gift to me, the Shepard Fairey Acme Obey Card Case for business cards. Let's hope the clients get the message... 4. An actual Shepard Fairey recent Obama critical poster.
Susan Shaw is an internationally exhibited painter and photographer. Private and public collections include the Museum of Modern Art and the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Shaw is the recipient of two New York State Artist’s Fellowships and 2007/2009 residency fellowships at the Vermont Studio Center.
Kurt Hoss is a freelance photographer capturing the exuberance of
New York City for 35 years. A favorite project has been documenting life in south western Louisiana, culminating in two recent books, Going to Lafayette and Bosco Swamp.
Shaw and Hoss recently received an AVA gold award for video production, as producers of The Mermaid Parade.
