Shepard Fairey bombs Boston

Interviews, videos, slideshows, and more of America's favorite street artist
By PHOENIX STAFF  |  February 11, 2009

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:

Shepard Fairey show BOMBS. As in, it's crap.
what a dud. this show is SUCH a HUGE disappointment. it had nothing to do with the street, was totally framed, had a 'Portraiture' room and was obviously mishandled after Emily Moore Brouillet left. the statement that it's the "hottest show in America" is such a tired journalistic cliche. if you're going to talk about art, please do so.
