Shepard Fairey first gained notoriety by translating pop culture imagery into guerilla propaganda campaigns that quickly became global phenomena, most prominently with his ubiquitous "Andre the Giant has a Posse" images. Fairey’s recent work consists of complex, multi-layered portraits of counter-cultural revolutionary figures combined with politically-charged propaganda style imagery. Fairey's image of Barack Obama propelled him toward widespread international acclaim when the stylized portrait of the presidential candidate with the word “HOPE” became the most recognizable image of the 2008 elections. Fairey's work is included in the permanent collections at the Smithsonian’s National Portrait Gallery, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the Museum of Modern Art in New York, and the Victoria and Albert Museum in London. Fairey is currently the subject of a major traveling museum survey, Shepard Fairey: Supply and Demand.
