Congratulations to my old friend, Shepard Fairey, on an amazing 2008. And never one to rest, he's kicked off the new year with the same manic momentum. Last week, a stenciled and collaged version of his Obama image was inducted into the Smithsonian's National Portrait Gallery. And opening next month in Boston at the ICA, is a 20 year retrospective of his work. Wow.
Not too shabby for a one-time student of Wilma Williams and the South Carolina Public School System.

And it looks like he finally secured a 'proper' studio.....ehehehe.
