Shepard Fairey - Sticker art of the 00's Gamer Generation

Labels: ,

Heard of shepard fairey? Does this pic ring a bell:



Yeah the guy responsible for all those skater sticker art in the early 00s apparently has a website. At least that's what I first recall him for. He also did those controversial Obama prints that have been spoofed to hell and back (Dark Knight spoofs anyone?). But the shepard fairey art reminds me more when skating games were the big rage.

If I recall Tony Hawk and crew abused the use of shepard fairey prints all over their games. Skater friends of mind back in the day would have them all over their skateboards. I would see a sticker or so on a building or wall. The art was very popular yet I never knew who it was by.

This art style just brings out the rebel youth in me - I'd see people at LAN parties with these on the side of there various rigs; the art was just that commonly used. Well if one didn't know - shepard fairey is the name. And he still sells and displays some of his works online years after the fact. Wild.

I recall em back around my area when I was in HS (like before 2000 - yeas I'm a child of the 80's, 90's. Wasn't aware this was the same guy that did those Obama posters.

It's like how yesterday I found out a VA for a game series I love did 2 other series I liked. Small world I guess.
