Shepard Fairey Creates Target for Vandals | NYC

Shepard Fairey…the guy that captured the visual campaign of Obama and former “vandal” of other peoples property, by taggeing the shit out of it, is now out in daylight…still tagging.

The corner of Bowery & Houston in NYC on a wall that used to showcase Keith Haring’s original 1984 Day-Glo mural is now the home for what is said to be a promo for his upcoming show May Day at NYC’s Deitch Projects …but it sure looks like an OBEY ad to a few bystanders.

In this shot of Fairey…he was lining up his stencil when a guy walked past us and yelled, “Nice ad for a clothing company Shep.”

Hours before the completion of the mural and I took a few pics:

I also caught up with artist Alex Gardega who traded a piece of his work with Fairey for this autographed jammie:
