Shepard Fairey

Shepard Fairey is an American contemporary graphic designer and illustrator who emerged from the skateboarding scene. He first became known for his 'André the Giant Has a Posse' (…OBEY…) sticker campaign, in which he appropriated images from the comedic supermarket tabloid Weekly World News. 

André the Giant Has a Posse is a street art and viral marketing campaign based on a design by Shepard Fairey created in 1989 in Providence, Rhode Island, USA.  Distributed by the skater community, the stickers featuring an image of André the Giant began showing up in many cities across the U.S.A. At the time Fairey declared the campaign to be 'an experiment in phenomenology.' Over time the artwork has been reused in a number of ways and has become worldwide. Fairey altered the work stylistically and semantically into the OBEY Giant logo.

The Institute of Contemporary Art, Boston calls Fairey one of today's best known and most influential street artists.
