Frank Shepard Fairey isn’t your average street artist that uses spray cans to get up. Born February 15, 1970, his medium is iconic prints with wheat paste rolled over them, so they stick to the surface he’s applying them to. My first introduction to his work was in San Francisco in the early to mid-90’s. At the time, I thought it was a painted stencil. Come to find out, it was a print wheat paste of Andre the Giant’s face! I remember being pumped about it because I’m a huge wrestling fan. His signature wheat paste prints became one of his trademarks. I saw them on billboards, rooftops, and light poles. They were everywhere, and it was awesome to see; no name, no text at all, just Andre’simage. One way or another, it made a statement when you saw it! Now you can find that image on his clothing line OBEY. Emerging from the skateboard scene, Frank has built OBEY into a mega empire for popular clothing and accessories. He became widely known during the 2008 U.S. presidential election for his Barack Obama "Hope" poster. The Institute of Contemporary Art in Boston has described him as one of the best known and most influential street artists. His work can be found in the collections at The Smithsonian, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the Museum of Modern Art in New York City, the Museum of Contemporary Art in San Diego, the National Portrait Gallery in Washington, D.C., the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts in Richmond, and the Victoria and Albert Museum in London.
