shepard_fairey_obey Since when does Shepard Fairey’s crew need to coax New Yorkers for permission to wheatpaste? Dangling prospects of a “genuine” mural allowing some lucky wall-owners to “experience the art and be a part of the OBEY phenomenon, in addition to contributing to the enhancement of the urban landscape,” Fairey sounds a little needy, but hey, he does have an exhibit/final Deitch Project show to promote!
