Hope, by Shepard Fairey
The Massachusetts-bred street artist Shepard Fairey returned to his home-turf this month to "bomb" the Phoenix offices, conduct interviews, and unveil his latest work at the ICA. Many may not jump at the name, but Fairey has been plastering walls and stickering newspaper boxes across the country for the last 20 years. His most recognizable image of late is the famous blue, red, and cream Barack Obama portrait that has been feveriously plastered on T-shirts, articles, and commercials for the last year. The Phoenix has more Shepard Fairey than we know what to do with! Check out our slideshows, videos, blog posts, reviews, and more from the bomber's latest trip home:
