Street Faireys

Shepard Fairey is at it again, painting murals on various locations around New York City.  In conjunction with the final exhibition at Deitch Project, Fairey has painted a large outdoor mural at the Bowrey and Houston site made famous by Keith Haring. A wall at the Cooper Square Hotel, and a spot at the Ace Hotel are also being painted. There are already 6 sites in New York featuring his work, with a rumored 7th spotted on Broadway around 28th Street this morning.

The show, entitled “May Day” and a pop up store featuring his work in collaboration with Obey opened this weekend.

While many appreciate the art, graffiti artists are bombing the sites regularly , as a statement against his authority as an artist.

Fairey, a street artist, is best known for his colorful poster of Barack Obama with the word “hope” at the bottom.
